CHEVIOT, OH (FOX19) - A Cheviot home suffered major damage after a fire on Thursday.

Flames broke out just after noon near the corner of Trevor and Woodbine.

The home is near the Cheviot firehouse, but crews still had to call in additional help to get the fire under control. The fire was knocked down within about a half hour.

Investigators believe the fire may have started outside the home, then spread inside. It's an older home with no firewalls.

The residents were not home at the time, so no one was injured. The cause is undetermined. Damage is estimated at about $80,000.
