Shortly after firefighters arrived the rear of the structure had partially collapsed, luckily no confirmed occupants were in that part of the home at the time.
However, neighbors said it appeared that someone could have been living in the structure at the time of fire.
Bystanders told HFD that the electrical service to the home has been disconnected for a year. It is not yet determined by fire crews if smoke detectors were in the house.
By 4:34 a.m. the fire was extinguished.
