Four fires broke out at the same time inside the Jesus House warehouse Tuesday night, and authorities are calling them suspicious.

Just before 9 p.m., a fire was reported at the warehouse, 1401 W Sheridan Ave. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and the fires were quickly extinguished, Oklahoma City fire Battalion Chief Tommy Iago said. Investigators determined the fires were set at four separate spots within the building, he said.

No injuries were reported and the building sustained very minimal damage, but food, clothing and other items were damaged, Iago said.

Oklahoma City-County Health Department was on scene to assess the amount of damaged food late Tuesday. Iago said a damage estimate had not been made and what started the fires had not been determined.
