TEMPLE (August 2, 2014) An early-morning fire Saturday gutted a single story home in Temple.

The fire was reported just before 2 a.m. Saturday at 1313 North 2nd Street.

A second alarm was sounded at 2:20 a.m.

The first crew on the scene reported smoke coming from a window and the eaves of the house.

Firefighters determined no one was inside and began an interior attack, but after heavy fire vented through the roof, the house was evacuated.

The house, which was unoccupied at the time of the fire, was a total loss.

The cause was ruled undetermined.
