Milwaukee, WI - On Wednesday, the El Rey Grocery store located in the 5200 block of W. Oklahoma Ave. went up in blaze causing at least $300K in food and other items, including some water and smoke damage to the building. Police are looking for several suspects seen casing the front of the store at around 11:30 p.m. before the fire started.

The store remained closed on Friday. El Rey will be closed for at least two weeks and has temporarily displaced about 100 employees, according to Olivia Villarreal, one of the owners.
