LYNCHBURG, Va. - Crews are on the scene of a house fire in Lynchburg. 

The fire started at a home at 1755 Miller Drive around 7:45 a.m. Officials say the house was also on fire on Tuesday. 

Firefighters say there is a part of the home crews can't access due to smoke, so the home will be torn down Thursday morning as a safety measure. 

According to neighbors, there have been squatters living in the home recently. 

A woman tells 10 News that her mother used to live in the house and that it's been empty for years.
