Home gutted by fire overnight

Weddington, N.C. (WBTV) -

Flames gutted a home on Lake Providence Drive in Weddington early Friday morning.

The call for service went out around 3:00 a.m.

More than five fire stations responded to the call. Firefighters said when they got to the scene, the home was already engulfed.

The owner of the home was out of town when the fire started and no one was hurt. 

Union County Assistant Fire Marshal Wyatte McBryde told WBTV the fire may have been burning for a half hour before neighbors were awakened by the crackling sound and the flames.

McBryde said his office will do a full investigation to determine the cause of the fire. The flames gutted the home, leaving only the brick exterior of the home behind.
