The Cudahy Fire Department is investigating whether a fire at an abandoned building was arson.
The fire broke out around 5 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Packard and Edgerton. When fire crews arrived, they found several fires in different locations of the building. 
Cudahy Fire Battalion Chief Robert Schmidt told TODAY’S TMJ4 that the fire looks like it was started by squatters trying to keep warm or vandals.
Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire within 15 minutes.  No one was injured or inside the building when the fire started.
