Around 12:20 am this morning the Rockford Fire Department were responding to a residential fire.
It happened in the area of 828 11th st. That is near 8th ave.
Initial reports are saying its a valid fire with smoke and flames showing.
Map shows it to be on the corner of 11th and 8th. So they might have 11th st blocked off. Avoid the area or expect delays
Update: RFD fire investigator John said that the scene should be cleared up in approx. 2 hours. Then traffic should be back to normal by then.
This is still developing
