Firefighters investigate house fire in Weston Hills

Home had been undergoing renovations

WESTON, Fla. – Firefighters are investigating a Monday night fire that destroyed a home undergoing renovations in Weston.

Broward County firefighters were called to the home in the 2500 block of Royal Palm Way in the Weston Hills community about 9:30 p.m. Battalion Chief Michael B. Kane said when they arrived, most of the roof was gone.

"Strong winds fed the fire and the large, expansive area made it increasingly difficult," Kane said, adding there was a team of about 50 firefighters at the home. 

While protecting two adjacent buildings, firefighters brought the flames under control about 10:30 p.m.

Kane said the home was burned beyond repair. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No injuries were reported.
