COBDEN, IL (KFVS) -

Firefighters in Cobden, Illinois had their hands full Thursday night after an empty house went up in flames.

The fire quickly swept through the abandoned home. 

The call came in around 7 p.m. p.m. Thursday night. The fire is being reported as suspicious at this time and the state fire marshal is investigating

Heartland News Viewer Felicia McDaniel says the flames were shooting out of the home when fire crews arrived.

According to firefighters on the scene, Cobden and Alto Pass fire crews got the fire under control fairly quickly but they had to stick around late into the night battling hot spots.

The state fire Marshal will be out at the home Friday to try and figure out exactly what caused the fire.
