A home is a loss this morning after an overnight fire and possible explosion.

Firefighters were called out to a home in the 700 block of Segur around 2:00 AM.

When they arrived the house was engulfed in flames, forcing them to fight the fire from the outside.

Neighbors tell 13abc, they heard an explosion before seeing flames.

People living in the neighborhood say the home was up for rent and the former tenants moved out back in April.

The fire was so large, the side of the house collapsed.

A cause of the fire is still under investigation.

No one was hurt.
