NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

 A large fire that broke out inside a vacant home early Wednesday is considered suspicious, fire officials said.

Smoke was pouring from the windows when crews responded to the 1100 block of Ann Street about 10:30 p.m.

The bulk of the blaze was knocked down after several minutes.

No one was hurt, but the fire is considered suspicious since the home had only been vacant a week and was without power.
