Grand Traverse County Business Destroyed by Fire

A suspicious fire destroyed a Grand Traverse County business this morning.
Mary's Café caught fire just after midnight in downtown Kingsley.

The fire chief says they are treating the fire as suspicious because of how and where it started in the rear of the building.

He also tells us the fire was hard to fight because the building is more than 100 years old with lots of nooks and crannies.

Firefighters were still at the scene after 5:00 a.m. this morning putting out hot spots.

No one was inside the building when the fire started.

It is being considered a total loss.
