Fire Breaks Out In Mendota

Posted by wlpo on December 27, 2010

Dozens of firefighters were in downtown Mendota Monday afternoon after being called to a four-alarm fire.

Work crews apparently thawing out gutters with torches ignited a wall on fire at Main Street Station Bar and Grill in downtown Mendota.  The fire spread up to the second story which is apartments.  The Illinois Valley Chapter of the Red Cross was contacted to help people living in the apartment.  No one was hurt.

Fire crews brought the fire under control quickly thanks to tower trucks from Peru and Mendota.  Just a small trace of smoke remained an hour after the initial fire report at two o’clock.

Most fire crews began leaving the scene around five o’clock.
