House fire kills Streator man

Posted by wlpo on December 5, 2012

The man killed in a Streator house fire has been identified.

62-year old Brent Vorhees was pronounced dead at the scene of a Tuesday afternoon fire in the 500 block of South Vermilion Street.  An autopsy is planned today.

Fire crews got a 911 call before four o’clock about the house fire.   Detective Robert Turner says it’s unclear if the home had working smoke detectors.  Turner says it doesn’t look like this fire is related to a string of arsons in Streator dating back to last spring.

Vorhees was the only person home at the time of the fire.
