Vincennes business to rebuild after being destroyed by arson

VINCENNES, Ind. - A southwestern Indiana dry-cleaning business destroyed by arson earlier this year will be rebuilt.

WTHI-TV reports that employees of C&G Quality Dry Cleaning Services in Vincennes told a city zoning board last week that they plan to rebuild. They did not provide a timetable for when construction will begin.

The May 21 fire left the building and its contents a complete loss.

The Vincennes City Fire Department and the state fire marshal's office found evidence that the fire was intentional set outside the building.

Chemicals fueled the fire, and Vincennes Fire Chief Gordon Becher says the blaze spread so quickly that crews couldn't put water on the building fast enough.
