Firefighters battled a two-alarm fire that severely damaged a single-family home in Los Gatos early Thursday morning, according to the Santa Clara County Fire Department.
The fire was reported around 5:50 a.m. at a two-story residence on the 100 block of Broadway, fire officials said.
The first firefighters on scene found a "significant working fire" both inside and on the outer part of the left side of the building, department officials said in a statement.
Neighbors reported that an elderly woman may be inside the home, but firefighters, after an "aggressive interior attack and search," determined that the house was empty at the time of the fire, officials said.
There are no reports of injuries, but flames quickly spread through the house and into the attic walls. The fire was tough to contain and caused significant damage before it was knocked down, fire officials said.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
