PEORIA, Ill. - An overnight fire causes $40,000 in damage to a home in the 500 block of Van Buren in Peoria.
Peoria firefighters responded to the call around midnight Monday morning to find the two-story home with heavy fire on the main floor. Due to size of the fire, crews couldn't get up to the second floor as the fire had already burned out the staircase. Ladders were placed at second story windows to knock the fire down.
No injuries were reported.
A fire investigator is working to determine the cause of the fire.
A halfway house could be coming to Peoria's south side.
