A fire in Mystic, Iowa has left a house completely destroyed.

Around two o’clock Friday morning, authorities arrived to a house fully engulfed on Highway J5T.

All that’s left of the structure now is the chimney and a portion of the deck.

Later that morning, authorities had to go back to the house because the deck was still burning.

Fortunately, the family who owns the house was not home at the time of the incident and no one was injured.

Mystic Fire Chief Phil Hudson says they have no idea what caused the fire and it is still under investigation.
