THE BRONX -

Firefighters are investigating the cause of a two-alarm fire in Claremont Monday afternoon.

The flames poured out of the vacant home on Franklin Avenue just after 4 p.m., according to firefighters.

The Department of Buildings tells News 12 that the home has been vacant since last September. They say that's when another fire occurred in the home and it was deemed unlivable.

People that News 12 spoke to say that people do sneak into the home from time to time.

No injuries have been reported as a result of the fire.
