Just before five Friday morning, fire crews were called to 2309 Hazelwood Avenue.
When they arrived on scene the house was fully engulfed in flames. The house is only three-tenths of a mile from Fire Station 10, so firefighters were on scene quickly.
Firefighters worked to gain entry to the rear of the home because a portion of the roof had collapsed in the front. They had the fire under control in about 20 minutes.
Neighbors tell us the house has been vacant for about ten years, but that someone had been working inside in recent days.
