TROTWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) – A fire at a vacant house is under investigation after firefighters were called there twice in the same night.

The first fire was reported around 8:20 p.m. on Tuesday at a house in the 100 block of Whispering Drive. The house is set back from the road and putting out the flames proved to be a challenge for firefighters.

They used a defensive attack, fighting the fire from the outside. After the flames were out, firefighters remained on scene, putting out hot spots.

They were called back to the house around 3 a.m. when the fire rekindled.

The fire is under investigation.
