House Fire

Photos by HRFD Photographers Sheryl Drost & Marcia Soppe



A deck fire on Vaughndale Dr. in Machesney Park quickly became a fully involved house fire after wind gusts of over 40 mph pushed the flames into the attic before firefighters arrived. Firefighters attacked from the front, the rear and above to bring this beast of a fire under control. Firefighters protected the two homes on either side from fire damage; siding was melted from the heat. A resident and the family pets were safely outside when fire units arrived. No one was injured in the blaze. The fire started on the back porch and believed to be from discarded smoking materials.
