Fire destroys house in St. Charles

(KMOV) -- A Thursday night fire has left one family homeless in St. Charles.

Authorities say neighbors saw flames coming from a house at 6 Kelso Court in Hilltop at about 7 p.m. The flames were so intense, the house was already on fire on one side when crews arrived and the siding was melting.

Neighbors had believed a teenage boy was inside the house at the time of the fire, but was later found safe at a neighbors house. 

The fire also caused heat damage to the two neighboring homes.

The fire is believed to have started in the garage, but the exact cause is under investigation. 

No one was home at the time.

There were no injuries.
