YONGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — Youngstown firefighters were busy last night as they had to fight two different vacant house fires.

The fire department said they got two calls around 5 a.m. Sunday.

The one fire was at the intersection of Hillman Street and East Delason Avenue, while the other fire was less than a mile away at the intersection of Hillman Street and Chicago Avenue.

Firefighters said when they got to the vacant houses, they were both fully engulfed in flames.

The investigation is ongoing and the arson unit will be out to see what started the fires on Monday.
