A house fire that broke out overnight left one neighbor worried if someone was inside at the time.

"My dog was barking, he was barking real bad so it made me look out the window and when I looked out the window I seen flames," said the neighbor.

Around 12:45 Lee County firefighters got a call about a fire on Kings Avenue near Highway 32. The neighbor said even though the house was abandoned she believed a man was sleeping there. Firefighters arrived and put out most of the flames but still had a few hot spots scattered across the house.

Fire officials confirmed no one was inside and they are still investigating how the fire started  since there is no electricity powered to the house.
