Firefighters respond to large vacant home fire in Mt. Morris this morning

A vacant home in Mt. Morris burned to the ground this morning.

Fire crews were called to a house in Mt. Morris Township this morning to a vacant home fully engulfed in flame.

Firefighters showed up around 1:30 this morning to the home on Juliah Avenue off Verdun.

A neighbor told NBC25 that the house had been abandoned for about 15 years and that this isn't the first time it has burned.

In recent years, the neighbor tells us, the home was boarded up.

Once it was clear other houses nearby wouldn't be impacted by the roaring fire, fire crews simply let it burn to the ground.

Officials say no one was hurt. ã??
