Huntsville Fire and Rescue worked to put out a house fire early Wednesday morning.

The fire broke out just after 6:00 in the morning along Chadwell Road. Firefighters said there was no one in the home at the time, however, they said at least one person does live at the house and has several people who live with them.

When fire crews arrived on the scene, flames were coming through the roof of the house. Crews said most of the damage happened around the chimney and roof area.

"Units arrived, they had smoke and flames shooting about 20 feet out of the ceiling, out of the roof there," said Frank McKenzie with Huntsville Fire and Rescue.

McKenzie said when he walked in the front door, the house was empty and there was no furniture. An investigator said they are looking into a variety of possibilities that caused the fire, including someone possibly breaking in.

Huntsville Fire and Rescue said this is the second house fire call they've received in the new year.
