Investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire in southwest Edmonton that destroyed a home under renovation.

Crews were called to the home near 41 Avenue and 122 Street just before 11 p.m. on Wednesday.

Flames and thick smoke were billowing from the single-family home when they arrived. 

"The owners were nearby and they said that nobody was in the house," District Chief Howard Samycia told CTV News Edmonton. "The roof had already been collapsed in so we didn't send anybody into the structure."

Neighbours in the area were removed from their homes as a precaution as crews worked to get the fire under control. 

The fire was brought under control by 11:30 p.m.

No injuries have been reported and the damage was contained to the one home.

The estimated costs of the damage are still being determined. 

This is a developing news story, more details will be provided as they become available.
