Fire severely damaged a house in the Mayfair subdivision Tuesday night, leaving a family of three homeless, Joliet Battalion Chief Laroy Aldridge said.

The Joliet Fire Department was alerted to the blaze at 3005 Frank Turk Dr. shortly after 6 p.m., Aldridge said. The owners were not home at the time, he said. The home has a Plainfield mailing address, but is located within Joliet's municipal boundaries.

    Investigators were on the scene and are trying to determine the cause of the fire, which appears to have started on the home's deck, he said.
