A house in Daviess County, KY is heavily damaged in a Saturday afternoon fire. 

The fire broke out around 1:00pm on Saturday inside a house on the 3000 block of Creek Branch Cove.

"We're investigating it right now," said Philpot Fire Department Chief Bob Newman.  "The fire definitely started in the garage, spread up the back wall, and got into the upstairs attic.  "So, we have a lot of water and smoke damage upstairs."

Fire crews had the fire out in about 45 minutes.

Officials say there were three people and a pet inside the home at the time of the fire.  All got out safely.

Fire investigators say they are still working to determine an exact cause.
