A vacation home is a total loss after it was destroyed by fire on Monday morning.

The fire was reported just before 11 a.m. at a property in the 5800 block of North Hunter Lake Road, according to a Vilas County Sheriff's Department news release.

The home was unoccupied at the time the blaze broke out, officials said. The exact cause of the fire has not been determined, but fire officials believe the blaze is weather-related, according to the release. The fire broke out while strong storms with dangerous lightning moved through the area.

The Conover, Eagle River and Land-O-Lakes Fire Departments responded.
