Rochester Fire Department officials are investigating what they call a "suspicious" house fire on the City’s west side.

Fire investigators responded to calls of a house on fire around 1:30 a.m. Friday. Officials tell News10NBC that flames were coming out of the first floor windows of a home on Glasser Street, near Child Street.

Battalion officials say they were able to knock down the fire before it spread to the second floor of the home. They say several windows in the home were boarded up, and although there were pieces of furniture in the home, it appeared to be unoccupied.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
