A house fire sent smoke billowing from the roof of an east Toledo home early Wednesday morning.

Firefighters were called to a home on Platt Street, near Sixth Street, just before 6 a.m.

Flames and smoke were shooting from the rooftop. The majority of the damage appeared to be on the second story.

Neighbors on scene say the home is vacant. No injuries were reported.

Firefighters had to break through the roof to battle the flames. Crews worked quickly to keep the fire from spreading to a neighboring home that was feet away.

Residents say the neighbors were in the process of remodeling their home.

The cause of the fire and the exact amount of damage is unknown at this time.
