GEORGETOWN, Ill. (WCIA) — First responders were called out to the scene of a house fire Sunday morning in Georgetown.
It happened just after 6 a.m. near West South 2nd Street and Main Street.
A Facebook post says when crews got there, the back of the home was completely in flames. They add the neighboring building to the east was “compromised.”

The scene was cleared before 9 a.m., and the fire department says no one was hurt.
Westville Area Fire Protection, Chrisman Fire Protection, Catlin Fire Protection, Tilton Fire, and Ridge Farm Fire assisted with the response, in addition to Georgetown Police and Georgetown FPD Ambulance.
