A home in Troup was destroyed in a morning fire.
It was about 8:45 Wednesday morning, when a driver passing by called 9-1-1 after noticing flames shooting out of a house.
When Troup firefighters arrived, the north end of the house was already going up in flames. Luckily, the homeowner had already left for work when the fire started.
Fire investigators say they have not yet determined a cause.
