A fire that damaged a bar in Antioch early Thursday morning is being considered suspicious, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District spokesman said.

The fire was reported at 4:48 a.m. at 101 Walter Way, the location of the bar ABC Rendezvous. Crews responded and extinguished the blaze with no injuries reported.

The flames were mostly contained to the bar but spread to the roof and damaged an adjacent tenant in the building, while other tenants — various auto-related businesses — reported smoke and water damage, fire district spokesman Steve Hill said.

Hill said the cause of the fire is under investigation but it is being characterized as suspicious. No other details were immediately available from the fire district.
