Streator firefighters put out electrical fire

Streator firefighters extinguished a small ceiling fire Saturday morning at a home.

Firefighters responded at 7:51 a.m. to find light smoke coming from a roof vent and the door of the residence at 213 W. Ninth St., according to a press release from the Streator Fire Department.

Once inside, firefighters found a small fire in an exhaust fan mounted in the ceiling. Firefighters removed the fan and parts of the ceiling affected by the fire. The roof structure was inspected.

There were no reports of injuries.

Damage to the home was minor and limited to the area surrounding the exhaust fan.

The Streator Fire Department was assisted by the Vermilion Valley Dispatch, the Streator Police Department, Advanced Medical Transport, Illinois American Water and the American Red Cross.
