Fire damaged a vacant home in Trotwood Friday afternoon.

Firefighters were called to the home, located at 5172 Gardendale Ave., just before 2 p.m. The structure had no electric power or gas, officials said.

Trotwood fire responded, but Dayton firefighters were later called in for mutual aid because of the humidity and heat.
