Fire Chief Bill Wissen said the fire started in the living room of the upstairs apartment but was unsure yet what had started it.He hadn't gotten a chance to talk to the upstairs residents yet as of 10 a.m., he said.

The fire was well under way when emergency personnel arrived at the scene, he said.
"Flames were coming out pretty good," said Wissen, who praised the job firefighters did in extinguishing the blaze."With the wind blowing, they did a good job knocking it down pretty fast."
The entire upstairs apartment of the converted house essentially was gutted by the fire, Wissen said.

"We should know within the next few days if we've got who we're looking for or not," said Streator Fire Chief Bill Wissen. Firefighters were called to the scene at 2:40 p.m. Sunday, and discovered the fire burning through the inside of the vacant factory building.Investigators determined that the fire spread quickly because of an excessive amount of cardboard, fabric and other flammable materials left inside by Dan Howard Industries when the company moved out of the factory in late 1990. The blaze raged for several hours before the 12 fire departments on hand were able to beat the fire down.Many of those departments brought tankers of water to the site, which were needed because of low water pressure in the area. Streator fire trucks have the capability to pump 1,500 gallons a minute, but the speed at which water was pumped at the site was limited because of the size of the water mains in the area.The five fire hydrants in the area are connected to 4-inch mains, which are smaller than many others throughout town.

...
The state fire marshal's office hasn't released its findings in the fire investigation yet, Wissen said.
Authorities have some suspects in the case, but are not revealing many details about who is being questioned.However, they do expect to know soon whether they are on the right track.

"It's undetermined, but there's a good chance it could have been related to a faulty furnace," said Streator Fire Chief Bill Wissen.The fire's origin is not being considered suspicious in nature, he said.

The fire engulfed the two-story building, leaving just a charred shell of the first floor behind.The fire broke out after 2:30 a.m. Monday, with two adults and two children inside the two-flat at the time.
...
Meanwhile, the Streator firefighter who was injured while battling the blaze is fine, with an appointment scheduled to fix his broken tooth, Wissen said.
...
Wissen expressed his pleasure with the good job Streator and Reading Township firefighters did in containing the blaze enough to keep it from spreading to neighboring buildings.
"The guys did a good job protecting those other two houses," Wissen said."Also, thanks to the Reading Township Fire Department for helping out."
The blaze engulfed the entire building quickly because of the construction of the old structure, Wissen said.
"A lot of times with these older buildings, once a fire gets going, it goes fast," Wissen said.
Firefighters deemed the house a total loss.
