Red Cross part of the scene of Streator house explosion

Posted by wlpo on September 3, 2014

The investigation into a fatal house explosion continues in Streator.

82-year-old Ethel Davison was found dead Tuesday afternoon inside of the rubble of her home that exploded the night before. Her grown son was able to get out of the explosion okay. Two neighboring homes caught fire and the Red Cross is assisting families who lived in those houses.

Three firefighters were treated and released in battling the Monday night fire. Nicor has been at the scene of the explosion making sure gas lines in the 300 block of Court Street don’t pose threats to the rest of the neighborhood.
