Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Firefighters and arson investigators are on the scene of a business fire on Preston Highway.

The business – Black Widow Customs – was the subject of a Consumer Watch investigation on WHAS11 Wednesday.

The fire is out right now but firefighters say the fire is suspicious.

An employee says when he got to the business Thursday morning, the shop had been broken into and vandalized and that there were several small fires on the ground near a car inside the shop.

He says he couldn’t put the fires out and that they spread quickly, destroying the whole inside of the store.

Investigators say they are looking into the fact that Black Widow Customs was featured in a WHAS11 Consumer Watch.

There were no injuries in the fire.

Some of the other businesses suffered smoke damage.
