New Braunfels fire officials are investigating the cause of a house fire on Thursday afternoon. The fire was reported on East Common Street off Loop 337.

Firefighters said the blaze started somewhere in the middle of the house and spread quickly to the attic.

Neighbors called for help after they saw flames shooting out of the roof, and the homeowner said his neighbor called him at work to inform him of the fire.

Fire officials said no one was inside the home at the time, but there was significant damage.
