TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW-TV) -- Topeka Fire Crews were called to a house in the 1000 block of Northeast Monroe at 6:12 a.m. Tuesday morning on reports of a house fire.

When fire crews arrived, the home was fully involved in flames.

Shift Commander Mike Thompson from the Topeka Fire Department told 13 News that the home had two to three apartments inside and the home had no gas or electric service at the time of the blaze.

Thompson also said there was a lot of "stuff" inside the home which made it hard for firefighters to extinguish the fire.

Two people were in the house when the fire broke out. The owner was gone when the fire broke out. There were no injuries reported.

The home owner did say a dog died in the fire.

Fire crews reported the fire being out by 7:45 a.m. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

The Shawnee County Appraiser's office lists the home's value at $29,280.00
