The fire was raging but firefighters were able to douse it. There were still some flames at about 5 p.m.

Local 4 received calls from as far away as Novi about the large plume of smoke.

There were no reports of injuries. Since this is an abandoned building, the Detroit Fire Department says firefighters worked to contain the flames and let the building burn.

Highland Park firefighters were helping.
