Fire damages Peru home

West St fire – West St fire

A house fire on West Street in Peru, a block north of Illinois Valley Community Hospital, detoured traffic for over an hour and left a home with fire and smoke damage.

It’s unclear what started the fire in the one-story brick home.  Peru Assistant Fire Chief Jim Duncan says the woman that lives there wasn’t home when it was called in just after 11am Thursday.  A cat was trapped in the house, but was saved.

The state fire marshall’s office has been called to investigate.
