BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The Bluffton Township Fire District responded to reports of a structure fire early Wednesday morning in the Lowcountry. 

The call went out shortly before 5 a.m. to a home at 210 Simmonsville Road in Bluffton. 

Fire crews were able to get the fire out in 15 minutes but the home was destroyed. Officials say they believe the home was vacant and no injuries were reported. 

WTOC was able to speak with the homeowner who said they just recently purchased the home 7 months ago and were currently fixing it up to eventually move in. 

Bluffton Township Fire District, Beaufort County EMS and Bluffton Police all responded.

Simmonsville Road at New Mustang Drive was blocked while crews worked the scene but the road has since reopened. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
