A spokesman from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Four crews from Cannock, a crew from Rugeley, Lichfield, Burton-on-Trent, two crews from Hanley and two crews from Brewood tackled the fire which is believed to have started on the ground floor before spreading.
"An aerial ladder platform was also used by crews to put out the flames from the top of the property. Firefighters used hose reel jets and a main jet from the front.
"A structural engineer was visiting the site on Tuesday and an investigation into the cause is underway."
A West Midlands Ambulance Service added: "We were called by the police at 6.53pm on Monday night to a property fire in St Andrew Close, Hednesford, Cannock.
"One ambulance attended and assessed one patient, a man, who was later discharged on scene."
Devastated relatives have set up a Go Fund Me page for the family in a bid to raise £500 to help replace items they lost in the fire. It has already raised more than £2,000.
The page states: “My sister has just lost everything in her home. After a huge house fire. My sister, brother-in-law and nephews have literally just got the clothes on their backs. Please help me raise some money for them.”
