WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A Waukesha County home is a total loss after it caught fire Monday night, Jan. 18. 

It happened around 8:30 p.m. at a home on Oakdale Drive near the Village of Vernon. 

Fire crews say when they arrived, the roof was already completely burned off. 

Because of the home's location, firefighters had to truck in water to the scene, making it tougher to fight the fire. 

"This is a challenging area to fight fires because we have to bring our own water in. So we have our water engine that has over 2,000 gallons of water, so we were able to do a pretty quick knock-down on it, but we have to set up a water operation here to bring in our own water in to fight the fires," said Vernon Fire Chief Patrick Hays.

They say the owner was able to get their pets out safely and no one was hurt.
