PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -  A Phenix City family is starting the new year with some misfortune after a fire destroyed their home.

The call came in to Ladonia and Crawford Volunteer Fire Departments just before four o'clock this afternoon to a trailer fire on Fred Street off Highway 80.

The owner of the home tells News Leader Nine she was cleaning up the property to rent it out, and she and her grandson had left the home just fifteen minutes before the blaze started.

There were no injuries and the cause of the fire has not been determined.
