Controlled burn spreads to bush, house
Fire does limited damage to Coal City home
Sean Ford was burning some vegetation around his Coal City home Thursday, April 12, when he noticed a bush smoldering near the residence.
Coal City Fire Chief James Sheldon said Ford attempted to put out the fire on the bush, but while inside his home a little more than two hours later, he saw smoke inside. Ford then called 9-1-1.
As Coal City firefighters responded shortly before 3 p.m. Thursday, they were able to see smoke and fire coming from the roof of the residence at 8700 E. Mallard Lane.
