    DETROIT (WWJ) – A century-old building in southwest Detroit was reduced to a pile of rubble after it erupted in flames Thursday morning.

    WWJ’s Ron Dewey reports fire broke just before 1 a.m. at a building in the heart of the city’s Mexican Town district, near West Vernor Highway and Hubbard Street.

    Fire officials said the building was vacant at the time. A neighboring apartment building was evacuated, but no injuries were reported.

    Firefighters remain on the scene over six hours later, dousing any remaining hot spots. As a result, West Vernor Highway remains closed between Clark Street and West Grand Boulevard — no word on how long the closure will last.

    A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
