Officials are investigating the cause of a house fire early Tuesday morning in Colerain Township.

A neighbor reported the fire just before 3:45 a.m. in the 2700 block of Breezy Way. Upon arrival, crews found heavy smoke and flames coming from the first and second floors of a two-story home.

Authorities said live electrical wires from a telephone pole to the house were also down in the front yard, creating an additional hazard to responding firefighters.

According to the Colerain Fire Department, the house had undergone several additions and renovations. The fire spread from the second floor into the attic and along void spaces in the walls, making the flames difficult to contain.

It was completely under control by 5 a.m., officials said. No one was home at the time and no injuries were reported.

While fire and smoke damage was extensive throughout the house, Colerain officials said there was not an immediate estimate of damages.
