A fire at an abandoned, condemned home in southeast Gainesville Tuesday morning is under investigation, firefighters reported.

Firefighters arrived at the home at 1204 SE 4th Place shortly before 5 a.m. to find flames coming out of the building's windows and roof, said Gainesville Fire Rescue spokeswoman Krista Ott. About 50 percent of the building was engulfed in flames.

Sixteen fighters responded to the fire, which was put out in under 20 minutes, Ott said.

Ott said the cause and origin of the fire is under investigation.
