DETORIT (WXYZ) — Detroit police and fire crews are at the scene of a smash-and-grab turned building fire early Thursday morning.

Officers told our 7 Action News photojournalist that a vehicle was driven into a vacant storefront, then the suspects went through the wall to access the contents of the clothing store.

The vehicle caught fire, spreading to the building.

The suspects abandoned the scene. No word yet on whether anything was taken.
