A vacant house in Harker Heights went up in flames early Thursday morning.
Harker Heights Fire Department Chief Paul Sims said the fire started just after 12:25 a.m. at a home on Triangle Road.
It took firefighters about 30 minutes to put the fire out. Firefighters said they had to use a defensive operation because of heavy flames.
Multiple homes were evacuated because of the fire, Sims said. The house was deemed a total loss.
A fire investigator was on the scene to determine the cause of the fire.
Firefighters from Killeen assisted.
