KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Firefighters say they are working to put out a fire at building in Kalamazoo that they are calling suspicious.

The fire started early Tuesday morning on Patterson Street between Douglas Avenue and Staples Avenue in Kalamazoo.

We're told this is an abandoned building and may have formerly been the home to Richland Piano company, located at 1031 Patterson Street.

Right now it appears the fire is out but several firefighters are still on scene working to chase hot spots.

There is also a heavy police presence.

Fire investigators say this fire is not connected to the violence downtown Kalamazoo Monday night.

We have a crew on scene working to learn more.
