A blaze at a former gas station in Bedford Township will be investigated as a suspicious fire, authorities said.
Flames were reported about 10:45 p.m. Monday in the 7200 block of South Telegraph Road near Sterns Road, Bedford Township Fire Chief John Bofia said.
Discarded tires and metal scraps inside the 3,200-square-foot building attached to the shuttered fuel stop kept flames going for about four hours. Fire crews left the scene at 5 a.m. No one was hurt in the blaze.
Authorities have not finished a damage estimate nor have they determined how or where the fire began, the chief said.
