EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Crews responded to a business fire on West Franklin Street Monday morning.

Officials say the call was originally for a dumpster fire in the 2300 block of Franklin Street.

When they got there, they say the fire was on the exterior of a business.

They say the fire was put out in about 25 minutes, but crews stayed on scene to remove smoke from the building and look for hot spots.

Our crew on scene tell us five people were in the three apartments above Aqua Care Pool.

We’re told all got out.

Officials tell us they were initially concerned about potentially harmful chemicals in Aqua Care.

However, they now say there were no hazardous issues.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
