Arson is to blame for a fire in Oakland Sunday evening.

No one was inside the vacant home at the time of the blaze.
When firefighters arrived flames were shooting out of a window on the front side of the house.
Topeka Fire Investigators estimate damages at $45,000.
$40,000 of that total to the structure and $5,000 in contents.
They say the fire originated in the first floor bedroom.
