HANNA CITY, Ill. (WMBD) — Farmington Road was closed from McCallister to Eden Streets due to a home fully engulfed in flames Friday afternoon.
The home is located in the 14000 block of Farmington Road, just down from American Pest Control. Four people including pets made it out of the home, but are now displaced.
According to the Logan Trivoli Assistant Fire Chief, the call came in at about 1 p.m. for a fire on a porch. Once they got to the scene, the fire had spread through the first floor and within 15 minutes the entire home had collapsed.
In total, 11 agencies responded to lug water back and forth for almost two hours in an attempt to get the water under control.
The American Red Cross has been contacted to help the family. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
Rt. 116 outside of Hanna City was expected to be shut down for a while until the fire was completely out.
