KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Thanksgiving Day fire has destroyed a century-old home in Kansas City, Kan. No injuries were reported.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/V04tCO ) that the fire was reported Thursday morning and that a family of four escaped the blaze before fire crews arrived.

Investigators say they think the blaze may have started in an attached building and then spread through the rest of the structure.

Officials estimated the fire caused $125,000 damages to the contents and structure. The homeowner told fire investigators that the residence had been in their family for more than 100 years.
