Rockford firefighters are trying to figure out whom or what caused a suspicious fire at a clothing store on the city's south side. Investigators are calling the fire suspicious because when crews arrived they found three separate fires burning throughout the building.

"Between the three different spots there was no fire that would cause it. I mean fire just doesn't jump around a building and there's no fire between each of the places," said Rockford Fire Department investigator Mark Marinaro.

Investigators are talking to the owners of the business and the building. They are both covered by insurance.

Anyone with information that could lead to an arrest can call the Rockford fire department or Rockford crimestoppers.
