GOSHEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The Goshen Fire Department are calling the early Friday fire that destroyed a vacant home suspicious, authorities said.

A neighbor walking in the 1300 block of Cross Creek Drive spotted the residence on fire and called 911 about 6:15 a.m.

When fire crews arrived, the blaze was too far along and large for them to safely venture inside to extinguish it, they said.

Here's a YouTube video shot by Chris Rolke showing the scene:

Fire crews battled the blaze defensively from the exterior and reported it knocked down shortly after.

No one was inside, fire officials said.

The home appears to be a total loss, they said.

The cause and a damage estimate remain under investigation.
