NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

Fire officials are investigating the cause of a vacant house fire early Thursday.

No one was hurt when flames broke out in the 900 block of Ann Street just after 5 a.m., said Newport Fire Captain Matt Pleiman.

Some 35 firefighters were called to assist from several departments including Newport, Covington, Bellevue-Dayton and Southgate.

Additional crews were needed because the fire was in the walls and attic, according to the chief.

A fire investigation team also was called to the scene.
