A home in Clayton is destroyed.

A teenage girl in Clayton got the scare of her life when her house burst into flames Friday while she was inside.

It happened on Nancy Court just before 5 p.m.

Town officials said the teen ran out of the house after seeing the flames in the back.

She was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.

Her mother, father and a sibling were not home at the time, but the family lost everything.

The intensity of the fire even burned some siding off a neighboring home.

The fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, which appears to have started in the laundry area.
