(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A fire destroyed a vacant home in midtown St. Joseph Wednesday night.

St. Joseph firefighters arrived at a large brick home on north 16th Street just before 8 p.m. But when crews arrived they found the house fully engulfed in flames.

SJFD said crews quickly determined the extent of the fire coupled with the fact that it was vacant to work defensively, so no structures nearby caught fire. 

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

Thursday we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will be with us as highs will be in the lower 30s on Thursday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s.
