ODESSA - Odessa fire investigators are still trying to figure out what started a massive fire on Friday night.

That fire on east Fifth Street destroyed one home and damaged two others.

The blaze started around 7 p.m. and firefighters say the home filled with flames by the time they reached the scene.

Investigators say there was so much tall grass and debris in the yard, it made it difficult to determine an exact cause of the fire.

The Red Cross has stepped in to help the displaced family.
