The fire that engulfed a vacant apartment in Escondido early Monday is considered suspicious, officials told NBC 7.

The fire was reported around 5:15 a.m. in a detached four-bedroom apartment on 1121 North Escondido Boulevard.

Firefighters said the unit was fully-involved when crews arrived.

Fire officials said the apartment is available for rent and was left with the doors unlocked.

The landlord showed the apartment to a prospective tenant Sunday.

No further information was immediately available.
