SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane firefighters say they are investigating an early morning fire in downtown Spokane as arson Saturday afternoon.

It happened around 3 a.m. in the area of Riverside and Lincoln near 24 Taps. The building was under construction at the time of the fire so no one was in the building at the time and no one was hurt. When firefighters arrived on the scene, they reported seeing smoke and flames coming from both floors.

Firefighters now say they are investigating the fire as arson, and believe someone broke into the building and started the fire on the first floor.
