Binghamton Dry Cleaning Building Cleaned Out a Year After Fire
Plastic-covered clothing was still hanging in a storage room almost 14 months after a blaze put a Binghamton dry-cleaning shop out of business.
Crescent Cleaners had operated at 40 Clinton Street in the city's First Ward for seven decades before the May 2020 fire.
Workers from Northeast Property Restoration have started cleaning out the interior of the building, removing commercial cleaning equipment and customers' clothing that was left behind.
The crew working at the site wore protective suits and took frequent breaks as they coped with the extremely warm conditions on Wednesday. The cleanup job is expected to take about two weeks to completed.
