A house fire left a Clinton County family with nothing, despite the efforts of dozens of firefighters from a handful of departments on scene battling the blaze.

Crews were called at about 1:00 p.m. to the 4300 block of 135th Street in Andover, Iowa, just north of the Almont Tap.

They spent hours there working to knock down flames.

Hours later, smoke was still coming from the home, which was slowly collapsing.

About 60 firefighters from eight different department responded. They say no one was inside the house when they arrived.

There is no word on any injuries and no word on the cause of the fire yet, although investigators say they believe it started in the garage.
