No one was injured in an early morning fire that destroyed an abandoned house in Edmonds. A neighbor called 911 at 1:07 a.m. and reported 20-foot flames coming from the two-story house in the 8800 block of 232nd Place SW.
Firefighters from South County Fire were assisted by Shoreline Fire.
Crews made an exterior attack due to unsafe conditions inside the house.
Firefighters used chain saws to cut through thick brush surrounding the house to get hose lines to the fire. It took firefighters about two hours to get the fire under control.
The cause of the fire is undetermined and is under investigation by the Snohomish County Fire Marshal's Office.
