ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -- Several fire crews battled a large blaze at a vacant house in north St. Louis on Friday evening.

The fire started in an abandoned, two-story brick structure on Newstead and Maffitt near Fairground Park around 5 p.m.

The house was soon engulfed in flames, while fire crews worked to contain the blaze. Firefighters were able to protect surrounding houses, but the vacant building was a complete loss.

No one was injured in the fire. Police say the fire remains under investigation, but is being considered suspicious.
