KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A house was destroyed by fire in Kansas City early Tuesday morning.

It happened about 5:30 a.m. at a home near Topping and St. John Avenues in Kansas City, MO.

Fire crews responded to a call of a fully-involved house fire and had the fire under control by 5:46 a.m.

Crews say the house was vacant but the fire did spread to a nearby house on Topping Avenue where firefighters had to break a window to help an elderly woman escape the flames. It is unclear whether or not she will be able to go back into her home.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Authorities on the scene say the vacant house was also severely damaged in another house fire in July.
