Fire heavily damaged a vacant house in Ontario Thursday morning. The blaze broke-out inside 133 Scotland Boulevard, causing smoke to billow out through the roof and walls, prompting neighbors to call the Springfield Township Fire Department.

No flames were visible outside, but Lt. Mike Mullins says they were raging inside. He says the basement was heavily damaged by fire, while the rest of the one-story house was damaged by heat and smoke.

Mullins says the flames were brought under control fairly quickly and easily. The State Fire Marshal was called to investigate the cause, while Madison Township firefighters provided mutual aid.

Neighbors standing outside say the elderly woman who used to live there was in a nursing home for several years before passing away recently.
