PEORIA Ill.- A structure fire at Maxx Wireless and Maxx Taxx has closed down parts of Western Avenue Wednesday morning. As of 5:20 a.m., Western Avenue is blocked off between Howett and Kettelle.
Crews responded to a report of a structure fire on Western Avenue just before 4 a.m. Within 15 minutes of arriving on scene, multiple crews were able to extinguish the fire. Crews swiftly attacked the back side of the building to put out the fire.
No one was in the building at the time of the fire and no injures were reported.
The inside of the structure is salvageable, but both businesses will be temporarily shut down until further notice.
