SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – A vacant home is now a total loss after catching on fire in Springfield Friday evening.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire is under investigation. All utilities to the home were turned off when the fire broke out, so investigators have ruled out an electrical cause. They were told that some individuals may have been squatting at the residence.
