An unoccupied house in Fernridge was engulfed in flames early Tuesday morning, when a fire broke out around 4 a.m.
The home, located on 24 Avenue near 216 Street, was already largely destroyed by the time fire crews arrived. It took nearly three hours for firefighters from five fire halls to put out the flames.
No one was inside the home at the time, as the owners were preparing to move the house to another property. It appears that the house was ºrecently renovated, with new vinyl siding and fresh paint visible among the damage.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated.
