Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An abandoned home caught on fire in the Portland neighborhood Monday afternoon.

Flames were seen coming out of the home on Lytle Street, near North 19th Street, at around 1:40 p.m. Fire officials say it started on the second floor and caused significant damage to the house.

Neighbors told firefighters the home was vacant.

"We still have to enter the structure, do a search and confirm for ourselves that that is, in fact, the case -- that no one was is in the home and that was the case in this situation," said Capt. Salvador Melendez of Louisville Fire and Rescue.

The fire did not spread to any other homes.

No one was injured.

It's not clear at this point what sparked the fire.
