A fire destroyed a home and two vehicles Christmas Eve near Waynesville.
When crews were dispatched shortly before 4:30 p.m., the tri-level house in the 8500 block of Wilson Road was reportedly engulfed.
A Waynesville fire captain said the fire was started by an unattended electric smoker in the garage.
Everyone made it out, and there were no injuries, the fire captain said.
Two vehicles in the driveway, a Ford Fusion and Ford F-150 also were likely destroyed.
Damage estimates were not immediately available.
