Arson investigators are looking into the cause of a fire at a vacant house in northeast Houston.

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.
