The Janesville Fire Department is investigating the cause of a house fire that caused $115,000 in damage early Wednesday morning.

Fire crews responded to a two-story single family home in the 200 block of S. Pontiac Dr. just after 4:30 a.m. Officials found the back of the home in flames, with fire extending into the attic.
