CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Fire Department is investigating an early morning fire at the former Popcorn Shop Factory at Shaker Square after someone threw an incendiary device through the window, according to Mike Norman, Public Information Officer for the Cleveland Division of Fire.
Fighters responded to 13201 Shaker Square at around 4:56 a.m. for a report of smoke coming out of a structure.

CFD working on stopping a sprinkler head from flooding the Popcorn Shop Factory in Shaker Square. Not sure if there was a fire or the sprinkler head just broke but it's making quite the mess.

Dewey’s Coffee shared a storefront space with the Popcorn Factory, and both closed their doors last May.
No further details on this fire were released. News 5 will update this story as more information becomes available.
