No one was home when fire struck a house on Warburton Drive in Charlottetown early Monday morning.

The fire was called in at 6:05 a.m., and the front part of the house was fully on fire when firefighters arrived. Flames from the house were intense enough to melt some of the siding off the home next door.

Firefighters had the blaze out within the hour. An ambulance was standing by, but a search of the house found no one inside.

Firefighters on the scene said it appeared the fire started in the garage. They will be investigating further.
