Intense flames gutted a home in Ancaster early Sunday morning.
Fire crews were called to 302 Lloyminn Avenue, by Lover's Lane and Sulphur Springs Road, at around 4:30 a.m.
They found a home that was fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters searched the property, and confirmed the homeowners were not home.
Due to the severity of the fire, additional crews were brought in to douse the flames, and a crew from public works was dispatched to spread salt on the roads, which were freezing due to the water being pumped.
The Office of the Fire Marshal has been contacted to help find a cause for the fire. Due to the heavy damage to the home, the cost is estimated at $700,000, officials say. The homeowners have reported they are insured.
No one was injured.
