Firefighters respond to reported house fire north of La Salle

Posted by wlpo on January 20, 2016

A man awoke to smoke Wednesday morning inside his rural Utica home.

Firefighters across the Illinois Valley were called out just after 8 o’clock to a fire on East 6th Road along the east side of Interstate 39. Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown says it turned out to be a small chimney fire. While damage was kept to a minimum, he doesn’t think the house is now livable.

Brown says they had the fire out in about a half hour. Nobody was hurt.
