An ABC11 crew at the scene says there were no hydrants in the area, so firefighters had to bring in pumper trucks to keep the flames from spreading into the woods.

It did not appear anyone lived in the home, but firefighters did evacuate nearby houses as a precaution.

The house was completely destroyed. It is unclear what caused the blaze.
