CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cleveland firefighters were dispatched twice overnight to the 2000 block of West 44th Street for a fire at two homes. Arson signs were posted on the homes.

The first fire was reported just after midnight Wednesday. One woman was able to make it out of the home without injury, but a dog tragically died in the fire.

Red Cross is assisting the displaced homeowner.

Crews responded to the scene for the second time at approximately 3:45 a.m. Initial investigation shows that the home re-ignited from exposure from the earlier fire. It was quickly put out.

There are now arson signs posted on the home seeking information with a $2,000 reward offered.

The fire department continuing their investigation.
