ESTACADA, OR (KPTV) -

A fire in Estacada on Friday destroyed a vacant home where the new residents were just moving in.

Firefighters in Estacada were called out to the two-alarm house fire at 21623 S. McKenzie Lane shortly after 6 a.m. The house was fully involved in flames when crews arrived.

Because the home is in a rural area, firefighters were forced to shuttle water to the home to fight the blaze.

At 7:15 a.m., crews were still on scene trying to fully put out the fire, and a fire department official says the home is likely a total loss.

No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire hasn't been released.
