KENT, Wash. - Firefighters battled a large fire at a home in an isolated area of Kent Friday morning.

Crews rushed to the 22300 block of Russell Road South just before 5:30 a.m. to find the second floor of the home engulfed in flames.

Photos show smoke pouring from the structure. The house was abandoned and is owned by the city, Kyle Ohashi with the Kent Fire Department says.

Crews fought the fire defensively and let the roof collapse so they could pour water from above.

No injuries were reported.

Fire investigators believe the fire started on the second floor of the home. Ohashi says this will make it difficult to determine a cause.
