KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM) -- Investigators believe someone broke into a Kentwood comercial complex and intentionally set a fire early Thursday morning that destroyed one business and damaged four others.
Crews were called to the building on Eastern Avenue south of 44th Street SE around 1:45 a.m. after receiving a report from a witness who had seen smoke coming out of the building.
Kentwood police say when they arrived on the scene they found the bottom of a glass door was broken and landscaping stones nearby were possibly used. Employees say the door was intact when they left at 10:30 p.m.
The fire was set on a wood shelf, investigators said.
One of the building's businesses was gutted by fire, while the surrounding businesses sustained smoke and water damage.
Kentwood investigators say the building has no fire suppression system.
