DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton firefighters are calling a vacant garage fire suspicious.

Fire crews were called to North Van Lear Street around 1:15 Tuesday morning.

Officials said trash and tires left behind by a previous owner were burning. They were able to put the fire out quickly.

Officials say they’ve been called to the area often.

Dayton Fire Lieutenant Michael Hickey told 2 NEWS, “Last year was pretty busy over here with arsons and other things so who knows the weather is here.”

No one was hurt.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
