UPDATE: Firefighters Battle Blaze in Abandoned Home

Wichita Falls Fire Investigators are looking for the cause of an early morning blaze.
The fire broke out in the 600 block of Juarez around 5:40 this morning and was abandoned.

The house had been taken over by the city for non-payment of taxes.
No one was hurt in the blaze and fire crews had it out in minutes.

The Fire Marshall estimates the house received about $5,000 worth of damage.
The cause  is under investigation but is being ruled as arson because it was abandoned and the utilities were off.
