Youngstown firefighters worked to control a vacant house fire early Thursday morning.

Flames broke out around 1 a.m. at a home on Parkwood Avenue. The fire has rekindled several times.

Neighboring houses on both sides sustained minor heat damage from the blaze.

“Crews battled both sides to try to knock it down to keep the heat off the other two because the other two are occupied,” said Battalion Chief Jimmy Drummond. “There was a car, a chimney fell on the other side.”

A damage estimate has not been determined for the neighboring homes. The vacant house was totally destroyed.

Investigators said they suspect the fire was intentionally set.
