ODESSA - It was a rough Christmas day for one West Odessa family when their home caught on fire.
Crews tell NewsWest 9 that no one was at home at the time the fire broke out.
It took firefighters almost four hours to get the blaze under control.
Sparks started shooting up through the roof, just before nine o'clock, in the 4300 block of north Sierra Avenue, near 42nd Street.
When fire officials arrived, the house was already up in flames.
