Flames tore through a three-story house in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood late Tuesday.

Neighbors said no one was inside the home when the fire broke out  just after 10 p.m. at  Third Avenue Northwest and Northwest 41st Street.

Onlookers crowded the area in front of the house as Seattle firefighters struggled to put out the flames, which shot up from the roof and garage. The last flames firefighters tamped down had engulfed a car at the home.

The Seattle Fire Department will investigate what caused the fire.
