ROCK HILL — Fire officials believe that someone intentionally set the flames that damaged the walls of The Crazy Horse Showclub, a Rock Hill strip club on Cherry Road, early Wednesday morning.
Three engines and one ladder were dispatched to extinguish the fire at about 4 a.m., said Rock Hill Fire Department Battalion Chief Rusty Myers. The business was closed at the time, he said, and no injuries were reported.
Officials estimate that the fire, which left behind charred walls and smoke damage, caused up to $5,000 in damage, Myers said.
None of the contents of the building were burned. The fire is still under investigation but Myers said officials believe the flames were intentionally set.
Officials also believe that the fire that destroyed part of the Collision and Paint Center at Burns Chevrolet earlier this week was also intentionally set, Myers said. The fire destroyed five cars that were inside, including one police cruiser.
Myers said authorities don't believe the two fires are connected. No charges have been filed in either fire.
