A fire Thursday morning that caused $25,000 in damage in a vacant home is under investigation.

Racine Fire Lt. Scott Sorce said in a written statement that crews were called at 8:16 a.m. Thursday to a home in the 1600 block of David Street for a report of fire and smoke showing.

Firefighters arrived and extinguished the fire at the exterior before moving inside to put out the blaze there. The damage was contained to the first floor.

No one was home at the time, and neighbors told firefighters the house has been vacant for some time.

Investigators are looking into what caused the fire.
