Couple displaced after a fire breaks out in their rural Bureau County home

Posted by wlpo on March 18, 2015

A couple and their dog are okay after their two-story home caught fire northwest of Ladd.

The initial 9-1-1 call came in Wednesday morning at 11:30 for a structure fire on 3200 East Street. Seatonville and Ladd Fire Departments were the first responding to the scene and they quickly asked for help from Malden, Cherry, Spring Valley, Peru and Princeton.

Ladd Fire Chief B.J. Liebe says the fire started on a first floor exterior wall. While the cause isn’t suspicious, the state fire marshal’s office will still investigate.
