Extensive damage to a Doncaster Drive home made it hard for firefighters to determine what sparked the early morning blaze.
Neighbors awoke at 2:30 AM Monday to find flames shooting from the home.
In the light of day, you can see those flames burned through the roof in several spots.
The home is for sale and the owner, Daniel MacDougald, was out of town.
Neighbors say all they could do was watch the home go up in flames.
"I looked in the dining room window and it was just a lot of, it was just a big blaze and it was really, really scary," said 14 year old neighbor Morgan Etheridge.
Firefighters kept the fire from spreading to any adjacent property, by dousing the home with 6,000 gallons of water.
