MACON, Ga. -- Bibb County firefighters responded to a house fire on Buena Vista Ave. in south Macon Monday evening.

There are three boarded up buildings at the address, but only one caught fire.

Battalion chief Ronnie Napier said the fire department is investigating this case as arson. He said it's a vacant home, and no one was hurt in the fire.

Napier said fire crews put out the fire in just a few minutes. The structure suffered heavy fire damage, including a caved in roof, and is considered to be a total loss.

The structure is near Pinson St., where an fire that was determined to be arson destroyed a vacant home in April. The same day, crews responded to another arson nearby at at Houston Ave. and Reid St.

WGXA crews are at the active scene working to gather more information. Check back for updates.
