LAKE OF EGYPT, IL (KFVS) -

Lake of Egypt fire crews responded to a house fire Sunday morning at 10036 Whitecotton Road in Williamson County.

The family was gone to church at the time of the fire. No one was injured.

A family member says he tried to go in back door and saw flames on wall by an electric heater, but the smoke was too heavy to go inside, and the garden hose was frozen.

The Lake of Egypt Fire Department says it started around the electric heater and central air system.

Witnesses say the home looks like it could be a total loss.

The Williamson County Fire Protection District assisted Lake of Egypt fire crews.
