An early morning fire ripped through a vacant house in Copiague Thursday, gutting the home and causing most of the structure to collapse, officials said.

The fire at the home on Ferraris Street was reported in a 911 call at 3:54 a.m., Suffolk County police said.

Firefighters from Copiague, North Lindenhurst, Amityville and North Amityville all responded, but couldn’t save the home.

The cause is under investigation. Additional details were not available.
