The fire that closed Lansing's Cristo Rey Community Center may be linked to another early morning incident.
Lansing Police responded to a fire call at Comprehensive Logistics around midnight Thursday. It seems a makeshift bomb was thrown through a window, but didn't go off. Police traced a trail to the Cristo Rey Community Center and found its medical clinic on fire. Whoever attempted to "bomb" the first building may have been successful at Cristo Rey.
Lansing Fire Investigators had ruled out everything but arson and electrical as the cause of the fire as of Thursday evening. Investigators are still sifting through debris waiting on an electrical inspection.
Cristo Rey's fire began in an exam room. Two of ten rooms are completely destroyed, three are badly damaged and the remaining five have either smoke or water damage. The clinic is closed for now, but services could resume as early as Monday using a mobile bus from the Ingham County Health Department. No word on whether other services will be available through the center Friday.
