TOLEDO (WTVG) — An investigation is underway after a fire started in a home that appears to be vacant.

Firefighters with Toledo Fire and Rescue responded to a 911 call about a house fire during the 1:00 AM hour Friday.

The two-story home is one of three houses in Marcella Ct. off Clinton.

Once the house was determined to be unoccupied, firefighters stayed outside and hosed down the exterior, keeping the flames from spreading to nearby homes.

By 5:00AM, the city department of neighborhoods brought in heavy equipment to tear down what remained of the structure.
