The Chattanooga Fire Department spent time in Lookout Valley Wednesday morning putting out a large fire at a vacant house.

Spokesman Bruce Garner says firefighters got the alarm at 4:37 a.m. and responded to 3602 Kelly's Ferry Road with five fire companies.

A Google Maps image shows how the house looked before it burned:

Battalion Chief Chris Willmore said it took the firefighters less than 20 minutes to get the fire under control.

No one was hurt.

Chief Willmore said the house was considered a total loss, with damages estimated at $67,000.

Garner says the house has been vacant for several years.

Still no word on the fire's cause.
