Champaign firefighters respond to two-alarm apartment fire
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) — Firefighters in Champaign responded to a fire at an apartment building that necessitated a two-alarm response Friday afternoon.
The fire happened 1101 South Mattis Avenue, a 14-unit building that was vacant at the time. Officials with the Champaign Fire Department said a passerby reported the fire around 1:30 p.m. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and fire coming from a second-floor unit and called for reinforcements.
Crews deployed multiple hose lines, which required the closure of Mattis as they stretched across the road. The fire was contained to the unit where it started and was eventually extinguished. No one was hurt.
The cause of the fire has not been determined yet.Copyright 2022 Nexstar Media Inc. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.
