Sturgis house fire considered suspicious

STURGIS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A St. Joseph County couple is starting the new year without a home because of a fire that investigators are now calling suspicious.

Early New Year's morning, the Sturgis Fire Department responded to the home in the 200 block of North Centerville Road.

They found flames and heavy smoke coming from the structure, but the two residents--a man and a woman--were able to get out safely.

The fire was quickly contained, but because of the age of the home, it took several hours to put the fire out.

The home is a total loss.

Fire investigators believe the fire is suspicious. At this time, they are not discussing their reasons, but do say there is no 'smoking gun.'

They're asking anyone with information to call Sturgis Police.
