Posted by wlpo on December 21, 2015

More than a week after a fatal fire in Streator, how it started is still officially known.

Bryan Park with the Streator Fire Department says the investigation is still ongoing so he’s unable to comment on the cause. Park says the department hopes to have an update in the near future.

Streator and Grand Ridge firefighters rushed to a house fire the morning of December 10th at 511 South Monroe Street. While one man was able to get out okay two victims died after being trapped in the single-story home’s basement.

Sixty-six-year-old Mary Jane Klein and 72-year-old Marvin Bradford died in the fire.
