Officials say a fire that damaged a building on Hammond Avenue in Superior on Sunday morning appears to be suspicious in nature.
Superior firefighters were called to a residential building at 1634 Hammond Ave. at 9:45 a.m. on a report of smoke coming from the eaves. Fire crews found heavy smoke on the second floor and in the attic, located the fire in a second-floor closet, and quickly extinguished the flames. Crews were on the scene for about two hours.
The building was unoccupied and no injuries were reported. Damage is estimated at $1,000.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the Superior Fire Department said it appears suspicious because the home was uninhabited and did not have electrical service.
