A house fire overnight keeps Tulsa firefighters rather busy.

Firefighters were called to the 1800 block of North Louisville around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.  The call went out as a possible rescue, but it turns out the house is vacant and undergoing renovations. 

Fire officials say damage is estimated at $30,000.

About an hour later, firefighters were called to the same house.  This time they found the home engulfed in flames. 

Two neighboring houses also had about $5,000 worth of damage because of the heat from the fire.  

Firefighters believe the second fire was intentionally set, but the cause is still under investigation.
