Fire crews battled a blaze at a house in South Hero late Wednesday night.

Firefighters say the home on East Shore Road was engulfed in flames when they arrived a little before midnight. No one was home at the time; the renters were on vacation. Because of that and the remote location, no one noticed the fire for quite some time.

"We immediatly went into defensive. No one entered the building; there was no reason to. Everybody appears to be safe; no one was home, no pets in the home. Unfortuntely the home appears to be a total loss," South Hero Fire Chief Kim Julow said.

Fire investigators have been called in to determine the cause.
