ODESSA - Investigators believe an electrical problem may be to blame for an Odessa home fire.

The fire broke out in the 1200 block of Roanoke on Sunday.

The majority of the damage done to the home was in the attic and to the roof of the home.

The house has been deemed unlivable after one-third of it was destroyed.

We're told the owner was at home at the time but he escaped when he smelled smoke.

Investigators are still investigating the cause of the fire but they believe it was an electrical fire.
