SIOUX CITY -- Sioux City firefighters spent hours battling a Morningside house fire Saturday afternoon. 

Mark Aesoph, a fire marshal with Sioux City Fire Rescue, said crews were called to the residence, 3511 Transit Ave., at around 2:45 p.m. The residents were not inside when crews arrived, and Aesoph said he did not know of any pets inside the home.

The home is considered a total loss, its roof obliterated by the flames. An investigation into the fire had not yet begun, and Aesoph said firefighters would remain on scene battling hot spots for "quite a while." 

A house next door at 3509 Transit Ave. sustained a degree of exterior damage due to the fire. 

Correction: An earlier version of this story used an incorrect address for the house where the fire occurred. The fire was at 3511 Transit Ave., and the next-door residence at 3509 sustained exterior damage due to the fire.
