A few of Rockford's southwest streets were closed off as Rockford fire department investigates a suspicious fire.

The fire broke out in the 5300 block of Preston Street. A neighbor noticed smoke and both Rockford and West Suburban fire departments responded. Fire officials believe the fire started in the kitchen and spread through the walls.

With such bitter cold temperatures the extra amount of people provided a rotation system.

There were no injuries and no one currently lives in the house. The fire is still under investigation.
