PEORIA, Ill -- Peoria firefighters were called Friday to an apartment fire that is being called suspicious.

Just after noon, crews arrived at 2832 West Wiswall. They found an exterior wall and rear door of an apartment on fire.

"Yeah, that's why we are deeming it suspicious right now," said Jerry Malone, Battalion Chief with the Peoria Fire Department. "We don't know if we have a dispute going on between neighbors, or just exactly what's happening. The police department is also involved along with our investigators. We're taking a look to see what's going on."

No one was injured. The damage is estimated at $6,000.
