Crews were called to the 1100 block of 29th Street around 11:00 p.m. Monday night.

Large flames and smoke could be seen coming from the two-story home.

We’re told that no one was in the house at the time of the fire.

Fire officials said the homeowners were gone and returned to find their house in flames.

A neighboring home also has damage to both the inside and outside. Authorities said Wednesday that this home ended up being condemned due to the extent of the damages.

Two people have been displaced from each home.

Firefighters were battling the blaze early into the morning Tuesday, staying on scene for about five hours.

No injuries have been reported.
