It broke out in the 1400 block of North 19th Street.

Smoke and flames were seen pouring out of the vacant home's basement around 7:30 Wednesday night.

This is right down the street from where another vacant home caught fire Wednesday afternoon -- that fire was deemed the one tonight, is being looked at carefully to see if it's connected.

No one was hurt in Wednesday night's fire.
