SPOKANE, Wash. -- Flames ripped through a vacant Spokane building, which allegedly used to house a prostitution ring.

The fire started around 11:30 a.m. at the former Starlite Spa near Market and Cleveland.

Starlite Spa was one of several businesses raided for a prostitution ring earlier this year. Electricity was shut off to the vacant building, and the fire department says crews found gas cans inside. These factors lead them to believe this could be suspicious.

The fire was knocked down in about 30 minutes.

There were no reports of injuries.
