FLOYDS KNOBS, Ind. (WDRB) -- An early morning fire destroyed a home in Floyds Knobs.

Fire crews were called to a home on Ballou Road around midnight.

Officials say when they arrived, the home and a garage were fully engulfed by flames.

Crews at the scene believe the house was being remodeled.

Firefighters also had to battle single digit temperatures. "The cold, it's six, seven degrees out right now. Things are freezing up. Lines are freezing up, and water. The nearest water supply is two miles away so we had to go with tanker operations," said Sellersburg Fire Dept. Maj. David Schickel.

Fire officials urge everyone to double check and make sure their smoke detectors are working this time of year.

There's no word on what caused the fire.
