There were no occupants in the house, and no injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Vacant homes going up in flames
It’s the latest in a string of vacant homes going up in flames in the past few weeks.
On Sept. 3, fire crews needed to put out a fire in a vacant one-and-a-half storey house Saturday morning on Burrows Avenue near Powers Street.
Earlier that week, three firefighters were hurt putting out a fire in a vacant multi-family home on Toronto Street.
And the previous weekend, a firefighter was injured putting out a fire at a vacant home on Selkirk Avenue.
