MOUNT WASHINGTON (FOX19) - Cincinnati fire officials said they are investigating the cause of an overnight fire at a vacant home for sale in Mt. Washington.

A total of 41 firefighters responded to several reports of flames shooting from the building in the 6000 block of Stanhill Court at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday, said District 4 Fire Chief Hugh Hains.

They found flames in the walls and ceiling, making it a "very labor intensive" fire to fight, he said.

They knocked the bulk of the fire down and remained on scene until 3 a.m., he said.

Damage was set is $30,000.

The home has a For Sale sign in the yard, Hains said.
