EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – Crews were called to an early morning house fire Monday. It happened around 2:30 a.m. near Main and Franklin Street.

We’re told there is also damage to a neighbor’s garage. Fire officials say the house is vacant and had no electricity going to it, but they suspect possible homeless activity.
