More Buildings Come Down In Minonk

Posted by wlpo on October 27, 2011

A day after the fire, two more buildings were knocked down in Minonk bringing the total to six.

Over a dozen fire departments responded to downtown Minonk when a fire broke out Tuesday morning just after four.  Officials think the fire started in the back of an old video store and then quickly spread to other adjacent buildings.  Besides the old video store, other buildings that came down were a former hardware store, a dentist office, insurance office, apartment and lawyer’s office.

Some of the buildings had second-floor apartments.  The Peoria chapter of the Red Cross is assisting people who lived in those apartments.
