The clean up is just getting started after a "suspicious" fire at the Jesus House warehouse downtown on Tuesday.

The fire was started around 9 p.m. Tuesday inside their community outreach center. It's the building where they take in donations and prepare meals for local homeless.

A lot of the donations, like clothes, furniture and food is now gone.

"The structure appears to be OK. It's a matter of cleaning up," says Jesus House Executive Director Rick Denny.

Firefighters say the fire looks suspicious, because they believed they've located four different spots inside the warehouse where the fire was started.

"We don't turn no one down and it's wrong that someone would do something like this," says Harry Tucker, who lives in the Jesus House Homeless shelter across the street from the warehouse which caught fire.

The Jesus House hopes to be back up and running at 100% in a week.
