A vacant house caught fire twice Friday morning in downtown Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Fire Department.

The fire department tweeted about 6:30 a.m. that there was heavy fire in the attic of the house, located at 310 N. 8th St. The same house had previously caught fire about 2 a.m.

No injuries were reported and no one was found inside either time the house caught fire.

The second fire began due to an ember that was left burning from the previous fire, Fire Department spokesman Tim Szymanski said. The official cause of the first fire is unknown.

Firefighters put out the second fire about 7:30 a.m.
