A fire tore through a St. Joseph County home Monday afternoon after starting in the backyard.

Crews were called out to the 5500 block of Sundown Drive around 4:30 p.m. That is just west of South Bend.

It took crews about an hour to get the fire under control.

The residents were not home at the time, and no one was hurt while fighting the fire.

Firefighters tell NewsCenter 16 it all started with an unattended leaf pile, left burning by someone in the neighborhood.
