MILWAUKEE -- Police are investigating two early-morning fires that broke out on Milwaukee's south side Friday.

The first fire broke out at Nabil's Furniture on 27th and Euclid just after 2:00 a.m.  Investigators don't yet know how it started. 

The other fire started at the family's home. Police say it appears two of the family's car were torched.

"For three years my family has been working on this store and it has disappeared in minutes," said Suhib Hussein. He owns the store with his family.

"My dad discovered the cars and said if the cars look like this, let's check out the business. 
maybe someone is trying to hurt us." 

The family believes they were targeted.  Their store is covered by insurance and they hope to rebuild in a new location.

Milwaukee police are investigating.
