A vacant house in the 200 block of Woodvale Avenue went up in flames Friday afternoon, causing moderate damage to the inside of it.

Neighbors told Lafayette firefighters the home had been vacant for a few months and there was no one inside of it.

"There are suspicious circumstances involved in the fire," says Lafayette Fire Department spokesman Alton Trahan as his office continues to investigate.
