Smoke could be seen from Route 18 west of Streator on Saturday afternoon as firefighters worked to extinguish a house fire at 1022 North 14th Road, also known as Arnold Salz Road, just south of Leonore.
Arnold Salz road, which connects Route 18 to Leonore, was closed by the La Salle County Sheriff’s Office while firefighters worked at the scene. Firefighters could be seen from a ladder truck spraying the fire from above, as wind gusts blew smoke across nearby fields. Firefighters from Dana tapped into fire hydrants on Streator’s west side to take to the fire site with a tanker truck.
The initial call brought out Lostant, Wenona and Toluca fire departments, but another request for firefighters was sent out.
The Times and NewsTribune will update the story with more information once it becomes available.
