Firefighters were on the scene at 2504 Reid Ave. this morning.

LORAIN — A fire pretty much completely damaged a home at West 25th Street and Reid Avenue this morning, according to Fire Capt. Jeffrey Fenn.

The home, a pink house on the southwest corner of the intersection at 2504 Reid, had damage to the entire structure. The fire was reported about 7:20 a.m.

No one was hurt, according to Fenn, and neighbors said the home had been vacant.

Fenn said the 2 1/2-story home will likely be considered a total loss because it was valued at only $10,000, and repairs will likely come close to that amount or exceed it.

Fenn said a cause of the fire has not yet been determined, and the department’s Fire Prevention Bureau is investigating.
