Posted by wlpo on April 22, 2014

A man from Mendota is without a house after his caught fire.

Mendota, Peru and Troy Grove firefighters were called out to a fire Monday night at Jose Escatel’s place on Fifth Street. Escatel was able to get out of the home okay.

While firefighters think the blaze started in the one-story home’s basement, the cause of the fire is undetermined. They were at the fire scene for nearly three hours.
