Charleston firefighters spent Friday morning battling a house fire in the 800 block of Chappell Road.

The fire started about 4:30 a.m.

It took more than an hour and a half to get the flames under control.

Firefighters had to cut down trees to get to the home. They also used a ladder sprayer to squash the flames.

No one was home at the residence. Neighbors said the house was vacant.
