MASON CITY, Iowa – Firefighters battled flames and sub-zero cold Saturday morning at a vacant house fire.

The Mason City Fire Department says crews were called to the 1500 block of North Pennsylvania before sunrise.

Firefighters got the call just after 5:00 a.m. The State Fire Marshal is still investigating the cause.

MCFD is reporting no injuries, but is calling the vacant house a total loss.

The family of the house’s owner says it was a rental property where someone had just been evicted and the family was going to start remodeling the home on Saturday so a family member could move into it.
