Investigators are looking for suspects in an arson fire that caused $5,000 to $6,000 in damage to the back of a downtown El Centro dry cleaning business Tuesday night.
The El Centro Fire Department received a call about the fire at Murray Cleaners at 9:50 p.m. Tuesday, said Capt. Wayne Cartee.
When firefighters arrived at the 138 S. 5th St. location, smoke filled the entire business, although flames were contained to just the back portion, Cartee said.
The fire was controlled about five minutes after arrival of firefighters and was extinguished in 10 minutes, Cartee said.
The flames broke out on plywood on the bottom ledge of an opening in a wall in the back of the business, Cartee said.
