Neighbors to a home on Patty Lane in Machesney Park noticed smoke coming from the home and called 911. Harlem-Roscoe Firefighters made forcible entry through the front door and found the home full of smoke and a fire in the kitchen. The fire was extinguished. Sadly the family dog and cat were found dead. Positive pressure fans were used to rid the home of smoke and the overhaul and investigation done. It is believed to be an accidental fire that started in the kitchen.
