CAMAS, WA (KPTV) -

 A fire destroyed a home in Camas on Sunday.

Firefighters were called out to the 20700 block of Southeast Evergreen Highway at 3:46 p.m. Crews arrived to find a two-story home fully involved in flames.

Firefighters said the lack of nearby fire hydrants hampered the initial efforts to control the fire, while exploding ammunition kept firefighters from getting too close to the structure.

Everyone in the home escaped without injury.

The house and its contents are considered a total loss, according to firefighters.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
