Firefighters in South Walton battled another large house fire, the second one this week.
 
Crews were called to a three-story home in the Seclusion Bay area in Santa Rosa Beach shortly before midnight Saturday night. When they got there, the second and third floors had collapsed and the entire structure was up in flames.
 
Two firefighters were injured but treated on scene and released.
 
South Walton Fire District called in the state Fire Marshall to help investigate, but they believe someone intentionally started the fire.
 
The house's estimated value is $407,000 and it appeared to be abandoned.
 
If you know anything about this fire or who may have set it, give officials a call as (850) 267-1298.
