Clinton Fire Responds to House Fire Monday Afternoon

On Monday at approximately 4 pm, the Clinton Fire Department was dispatched to Brush College Road for a structure fire called in by a passerby. 


The first arriving sheriff's deputy and EMS found a fully involved house on fire and a victim outside.  


Due to the location and visible fire, a second alarm was immediately requested for additional tankers. First arriving Clinton Fire Chiefs assisted Ems with patient care and moving.  The first engine arrived on the scene and immediately deployed a hand line to cool an LP tank and other hose lines to start fire suppression.   


The Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshall is doing a fire investigation.  Last Clinton fire officials cleared the scene at 8:30 pm.


In a post on Facebook Tuesday Morning, authorities thanked all the departments for their assistance - including Wapella, Kenney, Hickory Point, Warrensburg, Maroa Fire Departments, the Dewitt Sheriff's office, Dewitt County EMS, and Abbott EMS. Waynesville provided station coverage for Clinton during the incident.
