PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - An early morning fire in a Pittsburgh neighborhood is under investigation. 

Crews were called to Becks Run Road early this morning around 6:45 a.m. 

No one was inside and the fire was knocked down quickly, but investigators along with police remained on the scene. 

A neighbor told KDKA they did not hear the fire at the time and it's unclear if anyone does live inside the home. 

The owner of the home, who did not want to be identified, tells us that they just moved out of there about five months ago in order to do renovations before moving back in. He, along with five kids ranging in ages from 7 to 16, were there last weekend to clear things out and they did not see any issues. 

Investigators told him that the fire was likely an electrical fire and it started in the first-floor master bedroom.
