Investigators are working to determine the cause of an early morning fire on the city's northwest side.

Crews raced to the scene of a vacant house on Lake Avenue around 12:45 a.m. Tuesday. Investigators say the fire started on the second floor and filled the home with smoke. Firefighters say no one was injured.

Police this isn't the first time they've had problems with this house. They say neighbors have complained to police several times about young people using the house as a drinking hangout.
