MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) -- Meridian firefighters battled an early morning house fire here in the city.

It happened at a house near the intersection of 59th Avenue and 4th Street around 12:30 Thursday morning. When firefighters arrived, the house was fully engulfed. The home was severely damaged by the flames.

We don't know if anyone was inside the house at the time of the fire, but we hope to hear from fire investigators later on in the day.

The American Red Cross was called out to the scene.
