SHERMAN,TX--- A fire that destroyed a house and left a family homeless early Saturday morning is still smoldering today.

Sherman Fire Chief Jeff Jones says the one-alarm fire occurred early Saturday morning at around 2:00 a.m. on Sycamore Street in Sherman.

The home owner says she believes the fire started in the attic, but this has not been confirmed by the Sherman Fire Marshall.

He says the fire caused $20,000 worth of damage and the cause of the fire is still unknown.

Several neighbors say the fire could be seen from blocks away.

"I came out of my door and saw all these fire trucks.  There was a big blaze of fire that was just pushing out of the house," neighbor Mary McKinney said.  

The family says they are unsure whether they want to rebuild the house. They say they are waiting to hear from the insurance adjuster before making a decision.
