The structure is vacant, crews say, and there are “No Trespassing” signs posted in the area.

Fire officials on scene are ruling it a suspicious fire.

The 200 block of Glendale Avenue is closed for one block in both directions because of fire equipment on the ground. The fire has been put out, but hot spots remain.
