WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. — A house in Webster Groves was ruined in an overnight fire, fire officials told 5 On Your Side.

The fire first broke out just before midnight Monday at 20 East Allison, near Brentwood Park. The property received extensive damage from the flames, deemed as nearly destroyed by first responders. No one was inside the home at the time of the fire.

"To me, it sounded like someone had ran their car into the house," a neighbor told 5 On Your Side, whose daughter called 911.

The fire is under investigation.
