Everyone okay after latest house fire in Streator

Posted by wlpo on February 2, 2016

February has continued the trend that was started in January with a house fire in Streator.

The latest house fire broke out yesterday afternoon at 205 Penn Street on the east side of town just off Route 18. Everyone but a cat was out of the house when firefighters arrived. Firefighters were able to save the cat from the fire which started in the homes kitchen.

The cause is thought to be an electrical problem that started the dishwasher on fire. Most of the damage was contained to the kitchen.

Nobody was hurt in the fire.
