Wednesday, June 3, 2015; W. 92nd & Lorain Avenue: A fire in May of this year severely damaged the building that once housed Lorain Laundromat on the bottom floor. The building just east of the Laundromat building was also severely damaged. At press time, both buildings have been demolished. The Lorain Laundromat Building will be missed. Anita Brindza, Executive Director of Cudell Improvement, called the building the “Queen” of the Lorain Station Historic District. The fire marks the second major fire along the Lorain Avenue corridor during the first half of this year. On March 17th a grease fire that started on the grill destroyed the building that housed Steve’s Lunch at W. 50th and Lorain Avenue.
