Besides the vacant house fire in Streator, there were other types of fires breaking out in the Illinois Valley over the weekend.

On Saturday afternoon Ottawa firefighters were called to O’Reilly Auto Parts on Columbus Street for a dumpster fire.  Sunday afternoon La Salle firefighters helped put out a garbage can fire that broke out in a kitchen on Lauren Place.

Sunday night, La Salle firefighters helped Utica with a shed fire on Burgess Drive while in Marseilles firefighters were called to a home on 8th Street for a strong gas smell.  The homeowner had apparently left a burner on for over five hours.
