FALL RIVER, Mass. -

A fire that damaged an apartment building and a Cambodian market in Fall River is being considered suspicious, fire officials told NBC 10 on Thursday.

The fire at 1090 Pleasant St. started at about 7 a.m.

The fire forced the evacuation of the building, and four residents had to be assisted down a ladder to safety. No injuries were reported.

The building housed Soriya, a Cambodian market, on the first floor.

Investigators said witnesses reported seeing a man running from the building before the fire.

The Red Cross is assisting families that were displaced by the fire.
