Home destroyed by fire


ARTHUR, Ill. (WCIA) — Fire crews were called out to a home near Maple and Park about 3:20 am, Friday. When they arrived, the home was engulfed.

No one was in the structure. The family living there had moved out earlier in the week. Arthur’s fire chief said they may have been evicted.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire. The State Fire Marshal’s office does not expect to have an update until Monday.

The home is considered a total loss. Firefighters are expected to remain at the scene monitoring hotspots throughout the day.
