Fire at Former Sara Lee Bakery

A former bakery in Marquette that closed two years ago catches fire this afternoon.

The call came in just after 12:30 this afternoon for the old Sara Lee bakery on Washington Street.

Flames and smoke were coming from an empty garage bay on the south side of the building.

A suppression crew from the Marquette Fire Department was part of an 11-person fire crew on scene.

They located and extinguished the fire within a few minutes.

The fire was discovered by a security person on a routine check of the building.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire is suspicious, and that they are investigating.
