GOREVILLE, Ill. - A Goreville family loses their home to a fire.

The Holm's family built their dream home on Wolf Creek Road from the ground up.

Just before 6 p.m. Monday a fire started in the ceiling of the home.

The homeowner says they had just settled in for dinner when he heard a smoke alarm go off.

"Getting ready to cook dinner and heard the smoke alarms going off upstairs," said Keith Holm. "And I went upstairs I come down and said call 911, because smoke was billowing out the vents."

The family's home is a complete loss along with much of the contents.

The exact cause of the fire is still undetermined at this time.

A fire relief fund has been set up at the First Southern Bank in Carbondale for Keith and Sharon Holm.
