Area fire departments handle rural fire

Posted by wlpo on April 1, 2010

 It’s not a good time to start a burning a pile.  A man living on a farm property north of La Salle that was a blaze Thursday was burning before the fire grew out of control.

Fire fighters were called to the property on the Troy Grove Blacktop at 4:20pm Thursday.  They arrived to find grass, a barn and another building burning. 

Peru and Mendota fire were also called.  It took about an hour to get the fire under control.  Gusty winds didn’t help.  La Salle’s crew was on the scene until about 8pm.
