A fire reported tonight at a vacant duplex in Dayton was not the first time crews were called to extinguish flames at the same address.

Dayton firefighters were called around 10 p.m. to 27 and 29 S. McGee St. on a report of a burning residential structure. The fire likely started on the back porch, fire officials said.

Crews were called earlier this month to a fire at the same duplex. The first time the roof was engulfed. Both fires are considered suspicious, officials said.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. An arson investigator was called to the scene.
