KALAMAZOO, Mich. --   Crews remained at the scene of a Kalamazoo restaurant fire Thursday evening, hours after the blaze was put out at Sports Forum in Kalamazoo Thursday morning.

Firefighters arrived at the Sports Forum, 803 Mosel Ave., at about 5 a.m. Thursday.   Investigators are stopping short of calling the fire suspicious.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is working alongside Michigan State Police and fire investigators.

Kalamazoo Township Fire Marshal Todd Kowalski said that they found some questionable burn patterns during their investigation.

"At this time all options are still open," Kowalski said.  "We have not ruled anything out."

The owner of the Sports Forum says the building has been up for sale for months, and they are trying to decide what's next.

No one was injured in the fire.
