KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) People were evacuated from their homes early Thursday morning after a house caught on fire in Killeen.

That fire started at around 5:10 a.m. Thursday in the home on the corner of North College Avenue and West Sprott Street.

The first crews to arrive encountered thick smoke and flames coming from the roof of the house.

Killeen police closed down the area as crews worked to get the fire under control.

No injuries have been reported and no one has been displaced.

This same house caught on fire last year.

The house was so badly damaged it will be torn down, officials said.

The cause of the fire could not be determined, officials said.
