AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

Akron firefighters rushed to the scene of a vacant house fire early Friday morning. The house was also the same place where a deadly shooting occurred last week.

Crews responded to the fire at 879 East Ave. at 12:30 a.m.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze on the first floor of the house within 20 minutes. 

No injuries have been reported, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Akron detectives are also investigating a shooting that happened at the same address last week.

On Saturday April 13, a man was shot and killed at the East Ave home. At that time, the property was occupied.

Detectives could not confirm if the incidents were linked.
