SHERMAN, TX -- Fire destroys a vacant home in Sherman.  

Firefighters say the house was engulfed when they arrived and they had to wait while the gas company shut off the utilities.  

They were able to contain the fire, but mainly worked to keep it from spreading.  

The home completely burned to the ground.

"We're always concerned this time of year that somebody might have been in the structure, as you can see behind us the fire now is natural gas fed, having some difficulty cutting that gas off, so we've pretty much got it contained and we'll wait till it's out, and then just kind of make sure that nobody was inside," said Sherman Fire Chief J.J. Jones.

No one was hurt in the fire.  The fire Marshal is investigating the cause.
