A house in Shreveport believed to be vacant was destroyed Friday morning by a fire.

It happened around 4:30 a.m. in the 4400 block of Ledbetter.

When firefighters arrived, they said the house was up in flames.

Firefighters on scene told KSLA News 12 they had to take a defensive tactic to battle the blaze.

The house is believed to be a total loss.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
