Ashtabula_A vacant house at 513 W. 38th St. was fully engulfed in flames when Ashtabula firefighters arrived about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday. A mutual aid call was immediately made to the Ashtabula Township Fire Department.
The cause of the blaze maybe suspicious in nature because the utilities to the house had been shut off. A family moved out of the house at the end of June according to residents living near the house.
The building may have been scheduled for demolition.
