RALEIGH, N.C. -

A house in Raleigh caught fire for the second time in three days early Monday morning.

The house located in the 4000 block of Patriot Ridge Court caught fire at approximately 1:45 a.m. Monday.  Firefighters put out the blaze and cleared the scene by 4:30 a.m.

This isn't the first time the home caught fire. It also caught fire Saturday night in what authorities have deemed as a "suspicious" incident.

Also, authorities found a marijuana growing operation in the house back in September. Raleigh Police found 215 pounds of marijuana inside.

Police say no one lives in the home, and no injuries were reported in either fire. Authorities are working to determine the cause of Monday morning's fire.
