Vacant Allendale House Destroyed by Fire
A vacant house in the Allendale neighborhood is said to be a total loss following a late-night fire.
It was reported just before 10:30 last night in the 1900 block of Perrin Street. The first unit arrived minutes later to find the one-story, wood-frame home with heavy flames visible.
Crews attempted to extinguish the blaze from the inside for several minutes, until the roof began to collapse. All firefighters got out safely. It took just over 35 minutes to bring the blaze under control.
No injuries have been reported, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
