Squatters may be to blame for the fires that have heavily damaged the structure and injured one firefighter during the December fire.

For the second time in a month, firefighters battled a fire at a 2-story vacant wooden house near Fair Park on Thursday night.

Fire crews arrived about 9:45 p.m. to find smoke and flames pouring out of the early 20th Century home at 2916 South Boulevard.

There were no injuries reported.

On Dec. 6, a firefighter suffered burns to his face while battling flames at the same house.

Officials said at the time that there were four people inside the home but that all managed to escape without being harmed.

The owner told Fox4 that the home was built in 1901 and was undergoing renovation.

Cause of both fires is under investigation.

A firefighter was injured, and four people inside the house escaped the fire in the 2900 block of South Boulevard.
