Aide to the Fire Commissioner Dennis Leger told ABC40 that the call came in at around 3:00 a.m.

No one was inside the house at the time of the fire because it is currently up for sale. Firefighters say the flames started somewhere in the attic and caused about $50,000 in damage.

Leger says that the cause of the fire was an electrical issue in the kitchen area.
