Arson investigators are on the scene of a suspicious fire at an abandoned building in East Oakland -- trying to determine a cause.

The fire was first reported just after 11 Tuesday night.

It took about an hour for crews to knock it down but, not before it had done serious damage to the structure.

Officials say this is the fifth time this home has burned.

There was also an odd discovery -- the home was full of tires.

Officials now worry those burned tires could smolder for hours.
