Fire crews battled a 4-alarm fire at an apartment in Grosse Pointe Park, 7 Action News has learned.

The apartment is located at Mack and Nottingham and is above Bootleggers and Rockefellers bars.

We're told the tenant had a space heater catch fire around 5:30 a.m. Sunday, and the tenant tried to put the fire out. It didn't work and it spread out of control.

Right now, crews say there is a lot of damage, and they fought the fire for hours. Late Sunday morning, they were still putting out hot spots, but said the fire was mostly out.

The fire happened in the same building where Bob Bashara allegedly had his sex dungeon as well. That was below Hard Luck Lounge, which has since closed and been replaced by Bootleggers.
