Cleveland Laundry Company Up In Flames

May, 15th 2024

On March 7th, a massive fire broke out in the early morning at a commercial laundry business in Cleveland. Over 11 neighboring fire departments brought three ladder trucks, and 55 firefighters to help extinguish the fire. The major challenge was fighting the fire near active train tracks with trains scheduled to arrive that day. Therefore, authorities immediately halted trains from entering the area. Officials fought the wall of flames from the outside, and soon after, the roof collapsed.  A former Cleveland Brown player, Joe Jurevicius, owned the laundry company, “The Clean Group.”

Flames ripped through the building, causing the roof to collapse. 

The fire completely destroyed the building and is currently under investigation. However, the company is determined to rise from the ashes and continue serving its diverse clientele, including residents, hotels, restaurants, salons, and fitness centers.
