A Colorado home was deemed a total loss after a massive fire broke out on its deck Saturday evening.

Fire from a leaking propane grill ignited on Saturday evening on the deck of a Littleton home and spread inside, causing it to partially collapse.

The collapse forced firefighters to stop attacking from inside the home as it was deemed too dangerous. Crews remained on the scene into the night, working to contain rekindling pockets of “heat," according to officials. Drone efforts were also launched to safely position firefighters battling the blaze.

Videos posted on Twitter show flames shooting up from the home's roof above a thick cloud of smoke. Firefighters can be seen on the sidelines blasting water into the flames that are consuming the home.

A report from KKTV says two people were able to escape from home before the flames and smoke took over.

Thankfully, there were no injuries reported in the fire. West Metro Fire and South Metro Fire Rescue both responded.
