Burglar bars posed a problem for firefighters trying to put out a house fire in Clear Lake.

The flames broke out early Saturday morning on Neptune near Seakale Lane.

Firefighters say they also had trouble getting inside because the home was filled with junk. The homeowner apparently passed away recently, and no one was inside.

The cause of the fire is investigation.
