EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

Crews responded to a house fire in Evansville.

The fire broke out shortly after 9 Wednesday morning at a house in the 600 block of 10th Ave., between Iowa and W. Deleware.

Flames were shooting out of the front of the home as our crew arrived on scene. Fire crews quickly went to work on the second story of the home. 

There's no official word yet on the cause of the fire, but some neighbors told our reporter that the house was vacant and that police are routinely called there on drug cases.

No one was inside when the fire started.

It took crews about 25 minutes to put the fire out.
