VINCENNES, Ind. (AP) — Officials say chemicals fueled a fire that destroyed a dry-cleaning business in the southwestern Indiana city of Vincennes.

Off-duty firefighters were called in late Wednesday to help put out the blaze that sent flames through the roof of C&G Quality Dry Cleaning Services.

Vincennes Fire Chief Gordon Becher tells WTHI-TV that the blaze spread so quickly that crews couldn’t put water on the building fast enough.

The business owner tells WFIE-TV that all was fine a few hours earlier when he locked up the business that he’s owned for 10 years. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
