The Illinois State Fire Marshall is investigating a fire at a Washington Park strip club Saturday night.

Fire officials received a call about the fire at Scarlet’s Cabaret, located at 5841 Bunkum Rd., at 9 p.m., Washington Park Fire Chief Sharon Davis said.

It took about an hour to get the fire out, but fire crews remained on scene until 1 a.m. Davis said.
