Streator house fire forces residents from their home

Posted by wlpo on December 24, 2010

There’s never a good time to be forced from your home because of a fire, but early morning Christmas Eve seems like possibly the worst.

The people living in a rental home at 910 North Park Street in Streator were out of their home early Friday morning after a fire broke out in the kitchen.

Firefighters arrived to find heavy fire in the kitchen but were able to keep the blaze to just that room.  The rest of the home had heavy smoke and heat damage.  The family did not need assistance finding a place to go.

It was the second fire call in less than a day for Streator firefighters.  Thursday evening they were called to a home on West First Street for a garage fire.  It totaled the garage, car inside and damaged a nearby garage and house.

In both cases, the cause of the fires is being investigated.
