A fire destroyed a family's home on Bethel Road in Ardmore Wednesday night.

The fire started around 7:40 p.m., and firefighters said the house was a total loss.

The family of five who lived there included two sons and a daughter. They were all at church when the fire started, and none of them were injured. They are staying at a hotel.

Five fire departments responded to the fire including Oak Grove, Piney Chapel, East Limestone, Elkmont and Primary volunteer fire departments.
