Posted by wlpo on May 12, 2014

It still isn’t clear what started a fire that heavily damaged a metal pole building and adjacent apartment in rural Somonauk.

The fire was discovered before sunrise Sunday. Somonauk Fire Chief Pat Colford estimates the damage to the building and contents at $150,000.  He says people were home when it started but he won’t speculate on what started the fire that’s still be investigated.  No one was injured.  Several other departments were called for mutual aid.
