A Brookside house with a "beach-front" yard burned overnight.

The fire broke out at the house Wednesday night on the corner of East Meyer Boulevard and Walnut Street.

Firefighters were out called out around 11:35 p.m. They found thick smoke and fire coming from the structure.

The house belongs to Georgianna Reid. She and the house were recently in the headlines.

Over the summer, the city sent Reid a letter saying she had to clean up her yard filled with sand or face fines and jail time.

Back in 2007, investigators said a fire started in the living room then spread through the walls to the second floor. At the time they didn't know what started the fire.

No one was hurt in Wednesday’s fire.
