GREENVILLE - The State Fire Marshal's Office was called in Tuesday to investigate the cause of a fire at a duplex on Vine Street in Greenville.
Greenville Fire Department responded to the scene at 411 Vine St. after reports were received of a possible fire. Nothing was visible at the scene at the time crews arrived.
As personnel investigated both entry doors of the duplex, smoke was discovered coming from the 407 side of the structure.
Firefighters smashed open the door to gain entry and begin to extinguish the fire.
A rocking chair, still on fire, was removed from the residence along with other items damaged by the flames. Heavy smoke could be seen coming from the second story windows.
The fire was quickly contained, and departments called to help out on a second alarm were cancelled. Greenville Township arrived on the scene for mutual aid.
The resident of the other side of duplex reported "no damage, just smoke."
According to Assistant Chief David McDermitt of the Greenville Fire Department, the residence was vacant at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.
