Joliet firefighters battle 2 fires

JOLIET – Firefighters were kept busy with two fires Sunday night and early Monday.

The first occurred about 5 p.m. at a warehouse in the 100 block of Industry Avenue. Battalion Chief Mike Stromberg said workers discovered the northeast corner of the building was on fire and reported it. No injuries were reported. It took crews about 30 minutes to extinguish the fire, Stromberg said.

About 3 a.m. Monday, another fire destroyed a house in the 1000 block of Richmond Street. Stromberg said one man who’d been inside was able to escape but had to be treated for burns at Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center.

Both fires were under investigation Monday.
