Authorities are investigating a suspicious house fire on Evansville’s North Side. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:
A supervisor at Central Dispatch told WNIN that crews were sent to the house at 831 Allens Lane, near First Avenue, at about 5:20 Tuesday morning.
When firefighters arrived, they found flames shooting from the two-story house.
They battled the blaze for more than 20 minutes, before a district chief at the scene declared the fire tapped out at 5:45.
The house was not occupied and no injuries were reported.
Evansville Police were sent to the scene to assist in the investigation.
EFD Division Chief Mike Larson says there was a fire at the same address in January.
