(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) St. Joseph fire crews responded to a vacant house completely engulfed in flames Wednesday night.
The call came in around 10 p.m. of a possible structure fire at 31st and Messanie Streets.
When crews arrived on scene, large flames could be seen shooting from the home.
Neighbors said the home has been boarded up and vacant for several years.
"It's shocking to see how much fire can be made in one house that's abandoned, you know," Joshua Wing, neighbor, said. "It kinda shows how we need to pay attention to these structures that are left empty."
The house eventually collapsed. The home next to the structure suffered some smoke damage. Neighbors said they believe the neighboring home is occupied.
No injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
