Fire crews worked overnight to extinguish a fire at a home near 19th and Northern avenues. 

The Phoenix Fire Department said no one was inside the home when it went up in flames around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday. 

The home is a vacant building. 

Someone who was walking by saw the flames and called 911. The fire spread to a nearby school that is also vacant, officials said. 

The fire is considered to be "suspicious," firefighters said since this is the second time a fire has sparked at the home before.
