MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

A Murfreesboro family of six has been left homeless after a fire at their home on Monday night.

Fire officials arrived at the home on Overhill Court just before 9 p.m. and found heavy fire coming from the back of the home.

The fire spread to the attic and other parts of the house.

By the time the flames were out, parts of the roof were gone.

Two adults and four children made it out of the home safely.

The homeowner said the fire may have started in an upstairs bedroom.

Investigators will head back to the house Tuesday morning to continue the investigation.

The Red Cross is assisting the family.
