Investigators are working to learn the cause of a fire that destroyed the Newton home of a woman who had no insurance, according to Steve W Stewart with our media partner KJAS.

Captain Melanie Smith of the Newton Fire Department said both the Newton and Bon Wier Fire Departments responded to the fire at about 2:30 a.m. Monday on McMahon Street, about 4 blocks east of the Courthouse Square.

Smith said firefighters arrived to find the one story wood frame home already completely engulfed.

The homeowner wasn't there and no one was hurt.
