Several fire crews responded to a call on Duluth's Central Hillside Wednesday night.

Fire officials say that when they arrived to the rental property at 709 E 6th St., smoke was coming from the second floor.

On the scene, Assistant Chief Clint Reff said crews found a smoldering couch in the basement.

Reff says that the residence was unoccupied at the time of the fire, and that tenants had moved out earlier in the day. No one was injured.

Damage is estimated at $25,000-$30,000 and the exact cause is still under investigation.
