Empty garage burns in Streator

Posted by wlpo on September 23, 2016

In what seems like an all too common occurrence, Streator firefighters found themselves putting out a fire at an empty garage.

The call Thursday night came in just before 11 about a garage fire at 508 South Vermillion Street, which is a few blocks south of downtown. Firefighters had the fire out in a few minutes. The garage was gutted but no other buildings nearby were damaged.

The cause of the fire is undetermined as the Streator Police Department and Illinois State Fire Marshal were on scene looking into whom or what started it.
