Firefighters worked for about an hour Sunday evening to extinguish a blaze that gutted a vacant, two-story brick house in Jeannette.

The fire at 219 Chestnut Street was reported just before 8:30 p.m. and was under control in about an hour, Jeannette Fire Department Capt. Chuck Miller said.

No injuries were reported, he said.

The state police fire marshal ruled the fire's cause as electrical, Miller said. He said the fire is not suspicious.

“There was heavy flames in the first and second floor,” Miller said. “The house is a total loss.”

Neighboring homes were not damaged.
