An abandon house caught fire on Aug. 4 in Cabin Creek and damaged a nearby residence.

Fire rescue crews from Kanawha County responded to a structure fire shortly after 1 a.m. on the 500 block of Dry Branch Road near Cabin Creek.  The fire occurred at an abandoned home at that location.  Neighbors tell WOWK no one has lived in the home for 17 years.

Neighbors also say the heat and flames from the fire scorched the siding on a home 50 yards away.  The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
