TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo fire crews were called out to another vacant house fire in a south Toledo neighborhood early Monday morning for the third time in the same week.

It happened around midnight on the 400 block of Spencer near Walbridge.

Investigators say someone doused a vacant house with gasoline and set it on fire.

Crews were in the area when the call came in to 911 and managed to quickly get to the house and put out the blaze before it could spread.

However, even after the flames were out, there was a strong smell of gas around the neighborhood.

No one was hurt but the home was badly damaged.

If you know anything that could help police, call CrimeStopper 419-255-1111.
