Firefighters doused a single-alarm blaze at a vacant 8th Avenue house on Saturday evening, said deputy fire chief Ryan Murray.
Murray said the fire came in at 9 p.m. Fire was heavy on the second floor and the attic of the two-family house at 244 8th Avenue. Firefighters managed to keep the blaze as a single-alarm fire and brought it under control in less than an hour.
Fire was knocked down at 9:49 p.m., said Murray.
No one was injured in the blaze, said the deputy chief. He said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Correction (3/19/2017): A previous report erroneously stated the fire occurred on Sunday. It happened on Saturday evening.
