Local News

FARMINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — The fire started around 9 pm last night at the corner of North Cone Street and Fort Street in Farmington.

There have been no reported injures from the fire.

Crews came from multiple agencies across Peoria, Fulton, and parts of Knox Counties to battle the fire.

“It houses two businesses. It houses Whiskey Dixie’s on one side [and] O’Brian’s Parkside Deli on the other side. They are both total losses, [but] the law firm next door sustained a little bit of damage in the apartment up above it, [with] water damage and broken windows, but other than that we saved it,” said Farmington Fire Chief Matt Watters.
