Jackson firefighters responded to the scene of a house fire in Jackson overnight.

It happened around 2 a.m. on Randolph Street on the city's south side.

When firefighters arrived, there were no flames, just smoke coming from the back of the house. 

They say no one was at home at the time and no one was injured. 

The house suffered only minor damage, but since firefighters are considering the fire suspicious, they will continue the investigation later this morning.
