BRIDGEPORT — A van parked on a Vine Street driveway caught fire early Monday morning, and the flames spread into a nearby house.

The van was parked between 41 and 45 Vine Street, and caught fire at about 3:40 a.m., public safety spokesman Av Harris said.

“Fire extended into 45 Vine St. through the second floor, and traveled up into the attic,’’ Harris said. “Primary and secondary searches were completed, (and) both were negative. There was minor extension into 41 Vine St, but most of the damage to that structure was kept to the exterior.’’

The burned out house was vacant and the city fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, offcials said..
