CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Multiple calls to the Cincinnati Emergency Communications Center (CECC) brought the Cincinnati Fire Department to College Hill to battle an early morning house fire on Friday.

It happened in the 5900 block of Kenneth Avenue just after 3 a.m.

The two-story house was fully engulfed with flames when 38 firefighters responded. Other companies also responded to the fire, including Duke Electric because of live wires in the street.

Neighbors say that the house had been vacant for some time and no injuries have been reported for civilians or responders.

The Cincinnati Fire Department reports that the building had a One-Alarm structure and damages are estimated at $15,000.00.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is currently under investigation.
