The blaze started shortly before midnight in the 1200 block of Marbank Street.
The homeowner said he woke up when the fire alarm went off and was able to get his wife and kids out safely.
When firefighters arrived, they went in and rescued the family's dog and hamster. No one was hurt.
It is unclear what sparked the flames, but it appeared to have started on the back deck of the house.
Further details have not been released.
