FAIRFAX (KWWL) -

Firefighters battled a house fire near the Eastern Iowa Airport, late Tuesday morning.

Linn County Sheriff's deputies tell us they got the call just before 11:30, and fire crews from Fairfax and Swisher responded.

Deputies say the fire started because of a wood burning stove.

Fortunately the man living in the home was at work at the time, and not inside at the time.

The home is a total loss.
