VINCENNES, IN (WFIE) -

A dry cleaning business goes up in flames in Knox County.

Dispatchers tell us the blaze broke out around 11:00 p.m. eastern time at C & G Quality Dry Cleaning Services.

That's on the corner of Washington and State in Vincennes.

The city fire chief tells 14 News the fire was moving fast because of flammable materials inside, but crews were able to keep the blaze from spreading to other buildings within a few hours.

Two off duty shifts of firefighters were called back in to help put out the fire.

The owner, who's had the business for ten years, tells 14 News he locked up the store a few hours earlier and everything was fine.

He also says the business contained many gowns and dress clothes for upcoming graduations.

Red Cross was on scene most of the night helping firefighters with heat & exhaustion.

The State Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
