Olathe firefighters were called to 16100 W. 144th Street just before 4 a.m. Wednesday.

A neighbor alerted crews of the fire when she spotted the flames while looking out of her window. Crews arrived, at 4:02 a.m., to find the fire had burnt through the home's roof.

Neighbors informed firefighters that the home is undergoing renovations following a foreclosure and no one was living there. Fire crews also reported that there were no vehicles in the home's driveway or garage.

Firefighters battled flames from outside the home for about 20 minutes before going inside the structure.

The fire was reported to be under control at 4:44 a.m.. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No injuries were reported.
