Fighters responded to 13201 Shaker Square at around 4:56 a.m. for a report of smoke coming out of a structure.

News 5’s overnight photojournalist captured a smoky scene as crews battled smoke and also water flowing from sprinklers.

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.
