UPDATE 7/28/11 @ 5:15 a.m.
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Fire investigators are expected to spend part of Thursday trying to figure what caused a fire at a house in west Huntington.

Firefighters could see the flames engulfing the two story house at 817 Washington Avenue when they got to the scene just before 1 a.m.

Captain Gary Turner of the Huntington Fire Department says it appears the house was vacant.

At one point, the flames were so intense and damage to the structure was so bad, officials considered pulling crews out.

Captain Turner says it appears the fire started on an upper floor on the east side of the house.

Turner says the cause of the fire appears to be suspicious. He says that is partially due to information investigators received from neighbors.

No one was hurt.
