DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A vacant house caught fire early Wednesday morning, just one day after neighbors say Dayton city employees came to cut the tall grass.

Fire crews were called to a home on Paw Paw Street near Urbana Avenue just after 5.

When crews arrived they found fire starting to consume the house, but they were quickly able to put out the flames.

Firefighters called an investigator in to determine the cause but it does appear suspicious.

They say the home has been vacant for more than two years and neighbors say city employees just came out to cut the property’s tall grass Tuesday.

No one was hurt.
