(CAMERON) An historic home in Cameron has burned down overnight. 

Cameron Fire Department responded about 8:30PM to the historic Yoe House in the 300 block of N. Travis. Crews arrived to find the 2-story home fully engulfed. Rockdale Fire Department was called in to help fight the fire. However, crews were unable to save the home. 

The house had been vacant for several years and no power was going to the house. Yoe House, which belonged to CH Yoe, the namesake of Cameron Yoe High School, was believed to have been built in the early 1900s. As of now, investigators are trying to determine how the fire started. Officials are expected to term the fire suspicious and will likely turn the investigation over to the state fire marshal.
