A Mayflower home was destroyed Tuesday morning after a fire engulfed the property.
According to Fire Chief Carl Rossini, the Mayflower Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze at 823 Lollie Road after calls were received by Mayflower police.
"It was fully engulfed when we got here," Rossini said. "It’s a total loss."
Rossini said he was unsure of how the fire started and would continue the investigation.
The damaged property included the home, as well as a covered area used to park multiple vehicles.
According to Rossini, the victim left the residence at approximately 5 a.m. Tuesday. The victim stated that he believed everything was turned off when he left.
"We don’t know if it was electrical or something else, but I’m going to get out there just as soon as everything cools off," Rossini said.
No one was at home at the time of the fire. The homeowner arrived on scene shortly after the fire department.
Rossini said the Red Cross has been notified.
