Charlotte firefighters responded to an early morning house fire about 4 a.m. Wednesday at 1110 Choyce Avenue in southwest Charlotte.

It took 27 firefighters 19 minutes to knock down the fire and bring it under control. No injuries were reported and the structure is vacant, said Fire Capt. Dennis Gist.

Gist said the fire is still under investigation and it is unclear what the extent of the damage is. Officials also do not know yet what started the fire although officials believe it originated on the exterior of the building.

Gist said the fire then traveled up toward the attic, which is where most of the damage occurred.
