ASHTABULA — A three-alarm fire gutted a vacant house early Monday on the Ashtabula Harbor's east side.

Fire crews were dispatched to 925 E. 18th St., between Scott and Columbus avenues, at 12:44 a.m., according to the Ashtabula Fire Department's report.

When firefighters arrived at 12:50 a.m., they found a two-and-a-half-story, wood-frame house fully involved. 

The main body of the blaze was in the home's rear in a two-car attached garage, according to the report.

The house was a vacant structure with plywood covering the first floor windows and doors, the report said. 

The Bank of New York Mellon in Cleveland owns the property, according to the Ashtabula County Auditor's Office.

Firefighters entered the house through the front door and no one was discovered inside, the report said.

Ashtabula and Saybrook townships' fire departments assisted Ashtabula in fighting the fire inside the house, the report said. 

Firefighters also worked to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby homes.

No one was injured, according to the report. Firefighters were on scene until 3:30 a.m.

The cause of the fire has not been determined and is under investigation.
