PEORIA, Ill (HOI) -- -

A Peoria house fire just after midnight Saturday is suspected to be arson.

Peoria Fire Battalion Chief Jim Bachman reports the fire started at 12:20AM in the 400 block of E. Arcadia.

The home was reported to be vacant. Fire crews arrived to find flames scorching up the right side of the home, and into the second floor.

Heavy smoke and fire required ventilation of the roof, at which point the fire was able to be contained.

No one was hurt in the fire. The incident is under investigation.
