Firefighters rushed to save a home in Midtown after a neighbor reported seeing flames late Sunday night. 

According to the fire department, crews responded to the fire just before 11:30 p.m. near N.W. 7th and Western. When firefighters arrived, they reported seeing flames and smoke.

Firefighters tell us this fire started because a homeless person who was trying to stay warm sought shelter inside the empty home and lit a fire. For whatever reason, the fire spread.

No firefighters were hurt during the response.
