A vacant home caught fire in Cleveland early Tuesday, filling the neighborhood with smoke.

The blaze started around 5 a.m. in the 11800 block of Dove Avenue. 

When firefighters arrived, smoke was pouring from the home, making it hard to see. 

Firefighters battled with low visibility for about 20 minutes before flames started shooting through the roof. 

The home next door was occupied. Firefighters evacuated that house as a precaution in case the fire spread.

Fire crews were able to get the fire under control in about an hour.
