Quick action keeps hi-rise fire contained in Streator

Posted by wlpo on December 23, 2015

Composure and awareness kept a scary situation in Streator from being a whole lot worse.

A fire broke out Tuesday night in a room on the fifth floor of the Streator hi-rise on East Morrell Street. Anyone living near the room was evacuated while others hunkered down in their rooms at the request of the fire department. Firefighters spent over two hours putting out the fire and ventilating the building.

Nobody was hurt and damage was contained to the one room. The cause of the fire is under investigation but firefighters don’t think it’s anything suspicious.
