PEKIN, Ill. -- A Pekin home is severely damaged following an early morning fire.

Authorities were called to the home in the 2800 block of Deveron Circle just before 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

The home's occupant was able to get out safely. A neighbor said the resident told him that she heard a pop before seeing smoke coming out of the vents.

The home appeared to be a total loss.
