A shopping center had to be evacuated after a carpet cleaning business caught fire, sending black smoke into the surrounding stores and closing a major roadway.

The fire at the Excelsior Cleaners at 1320 W Boston Post Road in the Ferndale Shopping Center, began around 3:15 p.m. Wednesday, said the Town of Mamaroneck Police.

At least 40 firefighters from local departments were on hand helping battle the flames that were reportedly contained to the one building.

Boston Post Road is closed between Richbell Road and Weaver Street. As of 5:15 p.m., that roadway remained closed, police said.

Motorists are asked to avoid the area as Mamaroneck firefighters clear the area.
