A fire destroyed a Blue Springs residence early Thursday morning.

Central Jackson Country Fire Protection District crews responded to the blaze at a home on the 700 block of Northwest Devonshire Place at 1:55 a.m. Thursday morning, according to CJC Assistant Fire Chief Eddie Saffell.

Saffell said the fire caused a total loss of the home, located off Northwest Castle Drive, east of Woods Chapel Road and south of Northwest Kingsridge Drive.

Saffell said the home was occupied, but no one was inside it at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time, Saffell said.
