POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. – A fire that tore through parts of a vacant Harrison Street home on Friday has been deemed suspicious, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The blaze drew city firefighters to the second floor of 44 Harrison St. about 8:30 p.m., according to the Journal, which reported that the first responders on the scene reported “heavy fire” on their arrival.

While the flames eventually spread to the attic of the home and caused minor damage to a neighboring house, no injuries were reported, according to the Journal.

Fire Chief Mark Johnson later said investigators were working to determine the cause of the blaze, which he called “suspicious,” according to the Journal.
