A vacant home in Moses Lake was damaged by fire Monday morning.
Moses Lake firefighters responded to the structure fire at the corner of East Hill Avenue and South Dahlia Drive about 8 a.m. Crews arrived to heavy smoke coming from the home.
Assistant Fire Chief Pete Kunjara said no one was in the home when firefighters arrived on scene. The fire appears to have started in the basement in the back of the residence.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. Kunjara said there were obvious signs someone has been staying in the home, which was previously posted as uninhabitable. The home did not have running water or electricity.
