LOVELAND, Ohio -- Loveland and Miami Township crews are working to determine what caused a fire at about 3:30 a.m. Friday at 587 Branch Hill-Loveland Road.

Miami Township Fire Chief Stephen Kelly said a passing driver noticed smoke and called 911. The house was fully engulfed when fire crews arrived. 

Kelly said the two-story home is a total loss since it burned down to the foundation. The chief believes the home had been vacant and that the owners live in another part of Clermont County. No injuries were reported.

Branch Hill-Loveland Road was closed in both directions as crews investigated the blaze near Miami Riverview Park.
