Another fire burns at Detroit's Heidelberg Project

DETROIT (AP) — Another fire has burned a house that's part of the Heidelberg Project outdoor art installation in Detroit.

WDIV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/P7HjcS ) that the fire department responded early Friday to the fire on the city's east side that destroyed a building known as the "Doll House."

No injuries were reported.

The Heidelberg Project has been the target of at least eight earlier suspicious fires.

There have been no arrests related to the fires that started in May 2013, but local and federal officials are investigating. Tyree Guyton founded the east-side project in 1986 as a response to urban decay. The interactive sculpture park mixes vacant houses and empty yards with artistic themes.

Efforts have been taking place to add more security at the Heidelberg Project.
