Fire Tears Through Apartments

Fire Tears Through Apartments
By: Heartland News
Thebes, IL - Investigators will be returning to the scene of a fire in Thebes.
Heartland News was on the scene Thursday night as firemen from 8 departments battled the stubborn blaze.
It took about an hour to control flames leaping from the roof of a two-story public housing complex.
The complex housed four apartments.
All four were vacant and no one was injured. Residents of other apartments left their homes after firefighters said gas was leaking from the building.
It's believed the fire started around an air conditioning unit, but the cause won't be determined without a full investigation.
