KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A large fire destroyed a vacant Kansas City, Mo., home Wednesday morning.

Firefighters were dispatched to a home near 12th Terrace and Ewing around 8 a.m., upon reports of a home on fire.

As of 8:51 a.m., firefighters appeared to have the fire under control and were just working to put out hot spots.

Neighbors told FOX 4’s Matt Stewart that this is the second or third time the home has caught on fire and it was in the process of being remodeled. Neighbors also say no one was currently living in the home.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The house next door to the burned out home, which is also reportedly vacant, sustained minimal damage.
