Firefighters were called to the blaze on Florida Street at Brewster Street around 3:30am Sunday.
When responders arrived, heavy flames were shooting from the one-story, wood-frame house.
Firefighters made a fast attack and got the blaze under control.
According to officials, the last resident of the house just moved out a couple weeks ago.
The fire appears to have started on the front porch with the possible use of an accelerant, investigators said.
No one was injured.
