Firefighters were called to a fire at a strip center on the southeast side early this morning.

The call came in around 3:30am that a business was on fire off the Gulf Freeway at Edgebrook. When crews got there, they made a fast attack and were able to get the fire out.

The business that was on fire was a tile company and firefighters say there are signs the business was burglarized before it caught fire.

An arson team is now investigating.
