Despite attempts to make entry, heavy fire conditions massively impeded the firefighters' efforts to access the inside of the home.

As of 4 a.m., the fire was still not under control, though, fortunately, no severe injuries have been reported.

Over two dozen firefighters were on the scene, working to extinguish the stubborn fire that continued to destroy the structure.AdThe cause of the fire remains under active investigation as authorities try to determine the origins of the blaze that rapidly consumed the Lakewood home.

The firefighting teams stretched several lines to battle the fast-moving fire, hoping to soon bring the situation under control and prevent any further damage or injuries.
