HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Hamilton fire crews battled a stubborn fire at a vacant home on Sunday evening.

A defensive attack was ordered and units initially fought the fire from the outside of the structure using master streams and the ladder tower. Once the fire was knocked down, firefighters entered the home to overhaul remaining hot spots.
