The City of Orange Fire Department responded to a house fire at #20 Bruce Lane early this morning.  Units were dispatched at 04:10 to a report of explosion and possible fire on Bruce Lane .  

First arriving units reported a single story frame residence was fully involved with fire.  

Firefighters battled the fire using defensive tactics because of the heavy fire involvement and the instability of the structure.  

No injuries were reported and after a search, the house was determined to be vacant.  

The City of Pinehurst Fire Department assisted by standing by while Orange units were busy at the fire.
