Vacant home catches fire for second time in Streator

Posted by wlpo on October 31, 2016

There’s been another fire at a vacant house in Streator.

On Saturday night, firefighters responded to a house on fire at 513 South Vermillion Street. When they got to the scene, firefighters found the single-family home fully engulfed with the fire ready to spread to a couple neighboring homes.

The house that initially caught fire was severely damaged but firefighters were able to keep the fire from doing major damage to other houses. The neighboring homes had only minor damage.

How the fire started is under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office.
