Officials are calling a fire on the city's north side suspicious.

Crews were called to the scene of a fire on Gilmore Street Monday at 2 a.m. Investigators say flames shot from the back of the vacant home's roof. Backup firefighters were called to the scene to keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes. News10NBC has learned the fire was under control in about half an hour.

Investigators say since the home was not connected to gas or electric lines, it is considered suspicious.
