May 08, 2018 - 8:22 am

DETROIT (WWJ) - Authorities say a fire that quickly spread through a liquor store on Detroit's west side might have been set deliberately. 

The fire broke out Tuesday morning at a liquor store along Schaefer Highway near McNichols Road, not far from the Lodge Freeway. 

Crews on the roof say they found a bottle from a possible Molotov cocktail. Arson investigators have been called to the scene. 

No injuries were reported. 

Schaefer remains closed in both directions at McNichols as crews continue to clear the scene. 

An investigation is ongoing.
