Washington Park, Illinois (KSDK) - Fire crews in Washington Park battled a suspicious house fire that spread to three vehicles early Monday.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, they saw heavy fire coming from a home in the 1500 block of north 47th Street. Investigators say this is the third time in six months that crews have been dispatched to the home for a fire.

Neighbors say the home has been vacant for months, but several people parked their cars outside the home. The home next door sustained siding damage as a result of the heat from the fire. Everyone in that home was able to escape unharmed.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, but investigators say they believe it was intentionally set.
