(KMOV.com) -- Firefighters were forced evacuate a house in danger of collapsing while battling a blaze in Affton early Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the fire started in an unoccupied home under renovation in the 8500 block of Philo and Gravois around 1:30 a.m.

Officials say they believe someone set the fire because the house's gas and electric were shut off.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
