GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Nobody was hurt after a fire destroyed a house in Grand Rapids early Tuesday morning.

It happened at around 1:45 a.m. on Sigsbee Street near Diamond Avenue in the city’s Southeast side.  Neighbors called to report the fire, and said they thought the home was vacant.

When crews arrived, there were heavy flames shooting from the house.
