Dog killed and family displaced in Streator house fire

Posted by wlpo on March 2, 2016

Fire killed a dog and displaced a family in Streator.

Streator firefighters showed up to a house on Laura Avenue Tuesday afternoon to find heavy smoke coming from the chimney. They had the fire out in about 15 minutes but did find a dead dog inside the one-story house.

The home is unlivable and the family of four who used to live there is getting help from the American Red Cross. The cause of the fire is under investigation but it’s not considered to be anything suspicious.

The home is on the northeast side of Streator, a few blocks east of Northlawn School.
