Monroe firefighters battled a fire in an abandoned house Friday morning.

No one was hurt in the fire reported about 4:15 a.m. in the 14600 block of Old Snohomish-Monroe Road, Monroe Fire Marshal Mike Fitzgerald said.

People could see flames from more than a mile away, he said.

The house was behind locked fences, and had live power lines, slowing firefighting efforts.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
