MIAMISBURG, Ohio (WDTN) — Firefighters worked quickly to contain a vacant house fire in Miamisburg Tuesday night.

Firefighters responded to the 300 block of South Third Street, near East Linden Avenue around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday on reports of a fire.

Fire officials say flames were coming through the roof of the home when crews arrived.

Neighbors say someone recently purchased the home, and were working to repair it. Fire officials say they were working to speak with the homeowners.

According to fire officials, the house was damaged, but it’s possible it could still be saved.

“It is an old structure, but old structures often have good bones and can withstand a lot of abuse from a fire,” Miami Valley Fire District Battalion Chief Glenn Jirka said. “So, hopefully, it’s a saveable structure and they can come in and rehab it and put it back into good use in our community.”

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but fire officials say it does not appear suspicious.

Fire officials didn’t estimate damage done by the fire.

No one was hurt.
