KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Flames caused heavy damage at a Kansas City home early Monday morning.

The fire broke out about 3 a.m. at a house near 48th Street and Euclid Avenue.

When firefighters arrived, the home was fully evolved in smoke and flames and the house was upgraded to a two-alarm fire.

A low fire hydrant caused problems for crews when they first arrived. They were able to find and use another hydrant.

Police say the homeowner was not home at the time of the fire.

“No one is believed to be inside. They’ve contacted the homeowner and he is safe at another location," said Stacey Graves, a captain with the Kansas City Police Department.

No firefighters were hurt while battling the flames.

A few walls were left standing but the rest of the home collapsed. It is considered a total loss.

The cause of the fire is unknown. No other homes were affected by the flames.

The bomb and arson squad was called to investigate the scene.

"KCFD called in KCPD’s bomb and arson squad who investigates suspicious fires," Graves said.
