Funeral home fire in Toluca not considered suspicious

Posted by wlpo on May 11, 2016

Some kind of electrical issue likely started a fire that gutted a funeral home in Toluca.

Calls about a fire at the Calvert-Johnson & Froelich Memorial Home in Toluca started coming out late Monday night. Firefighters from places like Streator, Minonk and Lostant responded to help the Toluca Fire Department. When firefighters got to the fire of the two-story home turned funeral chapel, flames were shooting out of the attic.

It took crews about 6 hours to put out the initial fire although there was another fire call Tuesday morning around 8 after a hot spot rekindled. Nobody was hurt in the fire.
