A Marion home was heavily damaged by fire Wednesday afternoon, and fire officials believe the house is a total loss.
Assistant Fire Chief Jason Hale says firefighters went to 1731 West 3rd Street just before 1pm and found smoke and flames coming out of the structure.
Firefighters put out the blaze in just over 10 minutes with no difficulty, but the flames had already done significant damage.
Hale says the one occupant of the house was not home at the time and no one was injured.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
