Stonington Fire Department faced a difficult structure fire Thursday night, but thanks to the help of Taylorville, Blue Mound and an assist from the Christian County Sheriff’s, the fire was put out and the building may be salvagable.
The fire happened at Christian County FS location in Stonington. The fire was in the attic of the structure, causing a need for aerial support. Stonington Fire Protection district Captain Korey Bailey says the fire was diffucult to extinguish but everyone made it home safely.
The fire’s cause and the viability of the building are both still under investigation by the State of Illinois’ Fire Marshall office. Captain Bailey believes though that the FS building may be salvagable after major repairs.
