DETROIT (WJBK) -- An official says a suspicious fire burned a Detroit home where four people were found shot to death earlier this week.

Senior Chief Doug Lyon of the Detroit Fire Department says the fire at the home was reported Wednesday night, less than 24 hours after the bodies were found. No one was injured in the blaze, which was extinguished within an hour.

The fire appeared to have started in several spots.

Officers on Tuesday night discovered the bodies of a teenage boy, two men and woman at the home. The Wayne County medical examiner's office identified the victims Wednesday as Shawn Bender, 16; Janetta Harris, 22; Jason Koester, 28; and Dyrelle Davis, 34. Harris died of multiple gunshot wounds, while the other three were shot in the head, according to the office.

Investigators have said they believed the killings were drug-related.

No arrests have been reported.
