NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Fire reignited Thursday morning at a vacant home heavily damaged by fire early Wednesday.

Fire crews returned about 5 a.m. to the 6900 block of Mearl Avenue, where two dogs were killed in the 8 a.m. blaze the day before.

A third dog was taken to SPCA of Cincinnati for treatment.

No humans were inside at the time or hurt. No injuries were reported early Thursday as well.

The woman who lives there has been staying with a relative because the electricity was shut off several days ago, fire officials said.

The cause of Wednesday's fire remains under investigation, but it appears to have started at the front of the house or on the porch.

One of the fire hydrants in the area was frozen due to frigid temperatures. 

Fire crews said there was no delay to efforts to extinguish the blaze. They had extra water on the truck and another hydrant was easily accessed.

A damage estimate was not released.

FOX19 NOW has a crew at the scene and will update this breaking story.
