Firefighters Save Apartment Building

Improper storage of a combustible liquid seems to be the cause of a fire around 4am on April 6 in a 4-family apartment building on Talcott Drive in South Beloit. The resident called 9-1-1 after trying to put the fire out himself. The fire and smoke damage was contained to only one of the four apartments. "The initial crew of firefighters found the seat of the fire and extinguished it very quickly with minimal water usage" reports Harlem-Roscoe Fire Chief Don Shoevlin.
