MCCLURE, IL (KFVS) - Multiple fire crews were on the scene of a house fire Friday in McClure, Illinois.
The home was located on Grapevine Trial and Bridge Street.
Smoke and flames could be seen coming from the home late Friday morning.
The house belongs to Stanley Mouser, the East Cape-McClure Fire Chief. No one was home at the time, and no one was injured.
Flames continued to show from the roof of the charred home around 1:15 p.m.
Fire crews don't know a cause of the fire at this time.
"They've been our neighbors for probably 30 years," said Ron Creecy.
"Oh man it shocked everybody, it was really unexpected, we was just hoping for the best that the family wasn't home," said Sneed.
"It's a shame, that house has been here since I've been able to walk through here, i'm 71 today and it's been here a lot longer than that," said Creecy.
