BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - It was another busy night for Buffalo firefighters who battled two vacant house fires overnight in the Queen City, making it four total in the past two days.

All four fires look suspicious, according to fire investigators, and all four were at vacant properties.

The first overnight fire broke out at a vacant home on Miller Avenue around 11:00 p.m. Thursday night. Firefighters say it started on the first floor and quickly spread to the second floor. Crews battled for about an hour before extinguishing the blaze. No one was injured in the fire.

Shortly after the fire on Miller Avenue, fire crews responded to another vacant house fire on Titus Avenue, just about a block away from the first. That fire started in the rear of the home. No official cause has been named for either fire.

Overnight on Wednesday just up the road two other vacant homes burned, one on Gittiere and the other on Lathrope. Fire officials say all four look suspicious.
