Victim life flighted after apartment fire in Peru

Posted by wlpo on April 30, 2016

An apartment in Peru was gutted by fire.

A 9-1-1 call came in just after two Saturday morning about an apartment fire in the 1300 block of Maple Drive which is just north of Shooting Park Road. Peru and La Salle firefighters responded to the scene and rescued one person from the burning apartment and pulled another person out of the adjoining apartment. One of the injured was eventually flown out of town for medical treatment.

The state fire marshal’s office was contacted to look into the cause but firefighters aren’t thinking its anything suspicious.
