CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Firefighters are calling a two-alarm fire at a building in Over-the-Rhine suspicious.

The fire call went out about 10:30 p.m. Monday night to vacant building on Republic Street.  Firefighters say flames spread to a neighboring building.

The flames were under control within an hour, but crews stayed on the scene well past midnight to make sure it didn't spark up again.

No one was hurt in the fire, and it is considered to be suspicious. The building is a total loss.
