PEORIA, Ill. (WEEK) -- A Peoria home is destroyed by a late Sunday night fire.

Battalion Chief Steve Rada says it all began around 11 PM Sunday in the 700 block of West Bronz, where they were called for a garage fire.

Firefighters arrived on scene, and saw the home on fire, with heavy fire and smoke coming out of the side windows, and front door.

No one was inside at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

Firefighters remained on scene for several hours to full extinguish the flames.

Fire crews later determined the house was unsafe and ordered an emergency demolition.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
