Around 11:54 pm tonight the Loves Park Fire Department were dispatched to 6202 Forest Hills rd. Scanner traffic is saying there is a fire in the attic area of the building. The building is now fully engulfed, per the Loves Park Police. Still developing
Update: 2 cats have passed away in the fire. A family member contacted us and said it was the residence that caught on fire and is a total loss. The business is OK.
UPDATE: LPPD says it is fully engulfed. Unknown on injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
UPDATE: At 12:08 am the LPFD chief said he arrived on scene. At 12:08 am the first fire truck arrived on scene. Sounds like everyone is out of the building. They have shut down the southbound traffic on Forest hills near the scene, so avoid the area.
The LPFD chief just said he had a “fire grenade” if they need it inside. Anyone know what a fire grenade is?
Update: At 12:34 am they are requesting the North Park Fire Department ladder truck to the scene.
Note: The address on google says it is Betty’s Square Dance & Western Wear. But scanner traffic is making it sound like a residence.
