UPDATE: Lt. Jake Mahoney with the Aiken Department of Public Safety tells us the fire was caused by a weather related incident.
The call came in around 5:30 PM by a neighbor. Two full fire crews were sent to the house along with a full public safety crew.
When they arrived on the scene, the fire was fully involved. It took about two hours to put out due to an electric fence around the residence. They had to neutralize the power going to the fence before they could put out the fire.
The house is a total loss. There are no injuries reported as no one was home at the time of the fire.
Firefighters are working to put out a fire in Aiken this evening.
The structure fire is on the 1200 block of Evans Road in Aiken Estates.
Officials say electrical lines are down across the road. Do not attempt to approach the area.
