Crews fought the fire from the outside and once conditions improved they attempted to transition to an interior attack but were quickly forced out due to the level of damage inside.

WFPS says the fire was declared under control at 12:45 a.m. but crews remained on scene through the night to extinguish hot spots using aerial ladders and hand lines.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation. No damage estimates are available at this time but the house is considered a complete loss.

The property was also damaged by a fire in 2018.
