Multiple fire departments responded to a house fire just north of Zachary Monday evening.

The fire occurred at a house on Lemon Rd. off of Plank Rd. north of Zachary. Officials say everyone was able to make it out of the house. However, there were no hydrants nearby, making extinguishing the fire challenging.

No injuries have been reported. The owner of the home, an 83-year-old man, was not home when the fire started. A neighbor saw the fire and called authorities. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
