(ABC 6 News) -- A fire in Alden has left one family without a home.
Authorities say the home was fully engulfed by the time they arrived late Tuesday night.  It took nine different departments to put the fire out, but thankfully no one was hurt.

Still, surveying the damage today, the homeowner said he was at a loss for words.

"You know, what can you say? The pastor's been here and gave us a few words, and life's got to go on. That's all i can do," Bruce Niebhur said.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.  Niebhur says the state fire marshal won't be available until Friday to investigate.
