One family in northeast Houston will come back from spring break to a burned out home. According to neighbors, the family that owns the burned home is on vacation. Firefighters don't know why the unoccupied house caught fire.

"Right now, because there weren't any residents to interview, we determined an area of origin but not a cause of origin," said Capt. Don Stamps with the Houston Fire Department. "We're waiting on arson now to give us a heads up on that."

The house was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived. It is a total loss.
