It was a different kind of "Home Alone" in Delaware as cops were grappling with the discovery of a house abandoned on a two-lane street Tuesday. 

The Dover Police Department says the prefabricated home was left on the side of the road and blocking traffic until Wednesday. 

The police department posted images of the home on their Facebook page Tuesday, and it was shared thousands of times. 

"This is not a joke," police said in the post. 

InsideEdition.com spoke with Public Information Officer Master Cpl. Mark Hoffman, who said that it was discovered that the back part of the trailer went off into a ditch and the back axle broke under the weight of the house. 

He added that due to the time of the day, no one could come fix it and they had to shut the road down. 

By noon Wednesday, the house was moved and no one was in trouble.
