Just before 2:30 a.m., the Bridgeport Fire Department was dispatched to a reported structure fire at 1367 Reservoir Ave. 

Upon arrival, units found fire on the outside of the building threating to extend to the interior, said Ron Rolfe, Bridgeport FD deputy chief, who noted that quick operations by the members of the department held the damage to the exterior. 

"Our Fire Marshal Division is working with Bridgeport Police to investigate the fire," Rolfe said. "The incident is being treated as suspicious with evidence at the scene suggesting that the fire may have been intentionally set."

No injuries were reported to civilians or Fire Department members during the incident.

The working fire required four engines, two ladder trucks, the rescue company, an assistant chief and safety officer.
