A house outside South Charleston was destroyed Tuesday by an early morning fire.
The call came in about 5:30 a.m. to a home on Ronald Drive. When fire crews arrived at the scene, flames were shooting through the roof.
Two people were inside the home at the time of the fire but were able to get out and are OK.
Fire crews said they responded to the house the day before after the homeowner could smell smoke coming from a closet. They said the water heater had apparently caught on fire but that blaze extinguished on its own.
No word on the cause of Tuesday's fire, but fire crews said they think it started in the back of the house.
Crews from Tornado and Jefferson responded to the scene.
Firefighters are battling an early morning fire in South Charleston.
The fire was reported on Ronald Drive near Little Creek Park around 5:30 a.m. First Responders said flames were visible on the roof.
We will update this story when more information becomes available.
