Vacant house fire under investigation in Streator

Posted by wlpo on October 19, 2015

It was a wild end to the weekend for Streator firefighters. They were called to two house fires in about three hours time.

Just before 7 Sunday evening, a dryer fire filled a home with smoke at 302 Frech Street. Everyone who was in the house when the fire broke out is okay. Streator firefighters had the blaze under control in about 10 minutes.

Then at around 10 Sunday night, a call went out about a vacant house on fire at 808 North Everett Street. Firefighters showed up to find heavy smoke and fire coming from the back of the one-story house. They brought the fire under control in 20 minutes. Nobody was hurt.

The cause of this fire is under investigation.
