Evansville Fire officials are investigating a Friday night fire. 

Crews were called to the 600 Block of Jefferson Avenue for a report of a fire shortly after 6:30 p.m. 

The Evansville Fire Department says firefighters saw flames showing from the covered porch. We're told the resident was not home at the time of the fire. 

Fire officials say the bulk of the fire was knocked down quickly, but extensive overhaul was needed to search for hidden fires in the roof over the porch area. The fire was considered completely extinguished shortly after 7 p.m.

EFD says the Red Cross is providing assistance to two adults. No injuries were reported. 

EPD was notificed and an arson report has been filed. We're told the exact cause of the fire is under investigation.

A line of sustained to heavy rainfall is expected to push northeastward across the Tri-State between the hours 7AM and 11AM Thursday morning; be sure to pack an umbrella early tomorrow, as that timeline will fall during your morning commute Thursday. After the initial line of rain exits east of the region, we'll continue to see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Thursday afternoon and evening. Unfortunately, the same can be said for our Friday - lower pressure slowly spinning eastward will stall the rainfall and prolong our precip chances as we head into Friday afternoon and evening. It looks as though those chances of rainfall throughout our Friday will be sporadic at best and shouldn't lead to any significant disruption to those Friday night football games.
