Lake City, West Ridge, and Lake Shore fire departments were called to assist Fairview in battling the flames.
No injuries have been reported.
When volunteers arrived, flames had already shot through the roof of the home.
Tankers hauled water to the scene and hoses stretched from hydrants at West Lake Road poured water on the blaze.
The fire is believed to have started in the chimney and was called under control at 8:12 a.m.
