Arson is suspected in an overnight blaze that destroyed a home in Youngstown.

Flames broke out around 12:30 a.m. at a vacant house in the 2300 block of Bott Street on the city’s East Side.

The home was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. They let the structure burn to the ground.

No one was hurt and neighbors said the house has been empty for nearly four years.

The fire is under investigation.
