Maxwell Heights community building fire deemed suspicious

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Montgomery fire investigators are probing the cause of an abandoned building fire that happened in the Old Maxwell Heights community Tuesday night.

Authorities are calling the fire suspicious because no one was living there and electricity was not hooked up to the building.

Several MFD units were called to the scene, including three fire trucks, a ladder truck and a rehab unit. When they arrived, three or four buildings were already in flames.

The buildings had been abandoned for nearly 20 years and were locked behind fences. The buildings were in bad shape, so firefighters didn't take any unnecessary risks while extinguishing the blaze.

The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation but officials suspect it was either kids playing in the area or someone up to no good.

No injuries were reported in the blaze.
