NEAR SKYWAY, Wash. - A two-alarm fire destroyed a home near Skyway Friday night.

Firefighters from multiple agencies were called to the home off Beacon Coal Mine Road, near Monster road about 10:30 p.m.

Crews said when they arrived, the home was 70 to 80 percent engulfed in flames.

Video from the King County Sheriff's Office Guardian One helicopter showed a massive ball of fire.

Crews said one of the walls of the homes collapsed, so they moved into a defensive mode. It took more than two-dozen firefighters over an hour to get the fire fully contained.

They said one firefighter has an ankle injury, but is expected to be ok.

The home is a total loss, but firefighters were able to protect a nearby warehouse.

Investigators said they're not sure if anyone was inside the home at the time.

No word yet on what may have caused the fire.
