HANNIBAL, Mo. (WGEM) -

A Hannibal home was significantly damaged by fire early Monday morning.

Crews were called to the home at 1134 Ely Street about 4:45 a.m. The Hannibal Fire Department reported heavy smoke was coming from the home when firefighters arrived.

HFD said crews got the fire extinguished about 20 minutes after arriving. Crews were at the scene until 1:21 p.m. completing salvage, overhaul and the investigation.

Firefighters on scene said a mother and her two daughters made it out safely by the time crews arrived.

Asst. Chief Charles Paxton said the house had significant heat and smoke damage, but he could not say if it was a total loss. Hannibal Fire said there wasn't a working smoke detector in the home.

The Hannibal Fire Department said its investigators were assisted by the state fire marshal's office and Hannibal Police Department. The cause is still under investigation.
