Fire destroys portion of strip mall in Inkster

Cause of fire is under investigation

DEARBORN, Mich. – A strip mall in Inkster caught fire on Sunday, destroying the whole front half of the complex at Inkster and Cherry Hill roads, according to the city of Dearborn’s Facebook page.

Authorities said the back of the businesses were saved and the cause of the fire is under investigation.

Authorities also said the most damage that occurred was where a marijuana dispensary is located.

Mike Walker, general manager of Liberty Tax, said all customer files in that store are safe and being transferred to the Garden City location. 

Editor's note: The mayor of Inkster was originally reported as being an owner of the dispensary, but was actually the attorney in the sale transaction of the business.
