August 25, 2014- Erie Firefighters battled a house fire at 643 East 9th street for a structure fire early this morning - the third at that house in less than a month.

Heavy smoke and flames were reported just before 4 a-m; the fire fighters had the fire out in only a few minutes.

Crews on the scene say that vacant house also caught fire last Thursday around 4a.m. and crews worked quickly to ensure the safety of neighboring homes and residents in that area.

Chief fire inspector Guy Santone is looking into the cause of the blaze.
