Fire breaks out at Owen Glass plant in Streator

Posted by wlpo on March 17, 2016

As the sun was nearly setting, smoke filled the air in Streator.

A fire broke out on the roof of Owens Glass just after 6:30 Wednesday evening. Because it involved an industrial building, the mutual aid call was quickly put out with Ottawa and four other fire departments helping Streator at the scene.

The fire was contained to the building’s roof and firefighters say only minimal damage was done. Nobody was hurt.

The last firefighter was able to leave the scene about four hours after the initial 9-1-1 call.
