Firefighters working to extinguish a house fire in Edina have issued a third alarm as the flames continued to ravage the property on Tuesday afternoon.
The fire was first reported at about 3 p.m. at 5222 Green Farms Road.
From SKYFOX9, flames could be seen climbing through a heavily damaged roof as firefighters manned hoses from the ground and monitored from above.
According to Hennepin County property record, the 1.5-story house was valued at $500,000. FOX 9 News learned the homeowner bought the home in 2010 for more than half a million dollars.
No one was home at the time the fire began, and no injuries were reported. Nevertheless, neighbors say the loss is horrible because insurance won't begin to replace the home for the woman, her children and pets.
At this time, there is no word on what may have caused the fire.
