Officials are working to determine the cause of a residential fire in Rice County on Sunday morning.

Fire crews with three different departments responded to the structure fire in the small town of Chase.

Rice County officials reported the single-family residence was
fully-engulfed when they arrived.

Although the home was a complete loss, fire crews were able to quickly contain the fire from spreading to any nearby structures.

No one was home at the time the fire started. The American Red Cross disaster team is currently assisting the owner.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined, however, fire officials say it didn’t appear to be suspicious in nature. There were no injuries.
