A large home in Evergreen went up in flames early Monday morning.

More than 25 firefighters from Evergreen Fire Rescue battled the fire at Ponderosa and Aspen drives in freezing weather.

The home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. Crews "aggressively attacked" the fire, according to Evergreen Fire Rescue.

About 15 fire trucks were at the scene, officials said. Most were carrying water because there are no hydrants in the area.

The fire was reported by a neighbor, officials said.

No injuries have been reported.

The fire was out a little after 7 a.m. but crews were still pouring water on hot spots.
