    A suspicious fire is under investigation after a vacant building in Hartford caught fire early Friday morning. 

    Crews responded to an old steel manufacturing facility at 367 Homestead Ave. just before 2 a.m. after fire started on the second floor. 

    Because the 1916 building was built more than a century ago, it’s structurally unstable with stairs and parts of flooring missing, so crews were forced to fight the flames from outside. 

    Investigators are looking into how the fire in the vacant property started and the city building inspector will determine what happens to the building.
