DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — A family of four is displaced after a house fire. It happened about 9 am, Thursday, in the 1700-block of West Packard Street.
When crews arrived, they saw fire and heavy smoke coming from the home involving the entire attic area. A downed power line prevented them from accessing the backyard.
One person home at the time was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Two adults and two children lived there but damage from the fire has made it uninhabitable.
The cause is under investigation.
