IFD crews battled an early morning house fire in the 300 block of South Walcott Street.

Neighbors called 911 around 3:15 a.m. after losing power and seeing smoke in the area.  

Fire started in the back of the house and spread through the attic and out the roof.

House was undergoing renovation, so nobody was living there.

IFD estimates damage at $40,000.
