Officials Investigating Suspicious Fire At Produce Terminal

Pittsburgh Public Safety
Firefighters respond to a blaze at the Produce Terminal early Monday morning.

Authorities say a fire that severely damaged a Pittsburgh warehouse this week is considered suspicious.

But it's still not clear what caused the blaze in the city's Strip District, which was reported shortly before 4:40 a.m. Monday. Firefighters battled the blaze for nearly three hours before it was brought under control.

Officials say that although the fire caused severe damage, it doesn't appear as if it compromised the structure of the building, which was unoccupied and under construction. The structure is part of a planned produce terminal development .

No injuries were reported.

The fire remains under investigation.
