City fire crews called to a fire on the West Side in the early hours this morning.
A one-and-a-half story two family home was on fire at 299 Watson Street.
District Chief Gerry Morris says when crews arrived on scene at around 4:30 in the morning flames were coming from the back of the building and the roof.
He says the house was empty as the owner had just sold it and the new owner was supposed to take possession on Monday.
While no one was hurt, Morris says the building is a total loss.
Crews are still on scene now investigating although the fire has been put out.
