Young Streator girl earns Hero Award after house fire

Posted by wlpo on July 13, 2016

Heroes can come in all shapes, sizes and ages. A seven-year-old girl is being called a hero in Streator.

Lilly Wonders was presented a Hero Award by the Streator Fire Department for alerting her mom about a fire on Union Street. Back on June 29th, Lilly told her mom she smelled smoke. Her mom noticed a neighbor’s house across the street was burning.

Firefighters knocked the blaze down in about five minutes and thanks in large part to Lilly, the home is still livable. Nobody was hurt in the fire.
