The house was vacant at the time and was in the process of being sold by a family, McManaman said.

The cleaning crew called 911 to report the fire and firefighters arrived to find a fire in the basement.

The fire was quickly contained to the furnace and crews remained on the scene for approximately an hour and a half, McManaman said.

No injuries were reported and the home is uninhabitable because it does not have heat. Damage from the smoke was minimal.
