Crews respond to house fire


DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — Firefighters said no one was hurt in a Tuesday afternoon house fire.

They said it happened in a home in the 700 block of West Grand Avenue. Two adults were displaced.

The fire department shared a video of them on-scene. They said the video was “short for a good reason.” They said, “When you have fire stations located so that response times are short, you can attack fires before they consume significant parts of a structure.” They said Station 1 and 3 arrived at the same time, which allowed them to fight the fire quickly. It was confined to one room.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.
