A three-alarm fire early today extensively damaged a vacant house in the 3100 block of Clifton Ave., in the Walbrook section, that was undergoing renovation, a Fire Department spokesman said.
No injuries were reported among the 60 firefighters manning 29 pieces of equipment at the fire.
Capt. Patrick Flynn, the spokesman, said the fire was reported at 3:23 a.m. and that additional alarms were pulled at 3:28 a.m. and 3:31 a.m.
Flynn said the fire is being investigated.
He said the fire destroyed the rear of the three-story dwelling and burned through the roof. Two vehicles, a van and a sedan that were parked in a driveway next to the house, were damaged when debris from the dwelling fell on them.
Residents said the same house was set afire about two years ago and that no one had lived in the house since it was renovated following that fire.
