North Huntingdon police are investigating a blaze Sunday night at a dry-cleaning business.
The cause is still listed as “undetermined,” township police Chief Andrew Lisiecki said Monday. Investigators have been unable to detect an incendiary device or accelerant, he said.
The fire may have started in the maintenance room, Lisiecki said.
Firefighters battled the flames from outside the business because of the risks — chemicals and fears of a roof collapse, he said. Heavy smoke poured from the warehouse on Parker Drive Sunday evening.
The building's owner said it housed two businesses, ImageFIRST and Joseph Krow Co. Joseph Krow provides laundry and dry-cleaning services for area hospitals and health care facilities.
