RANTOUL, Ill. (WCIA) – A house fire was reported on Saturday evening in Rantoul.
First responders rushed to the scene shortly before 7:00 p.m. at 112 W Letchworth Avenue in town. Flames were shooting through the roof over 3 hours after the fire started. Neighbors we talked to say they couldn’t believe it happened right out their front door.
Ben DeAtley said “It’s defiantly pretty crazy seeing this stuff go on so close to home. When you walk out your front door and you see that. You get to know the people and the neighbors you know its pretty scary knowing that it could happen to you or anybody at any time.”
There is no word on any injuries at this time. We’re working to find out more information.
