Rockford Scanner™: S. Beloit FD Battles A Mobile Home Fire




At approximately 3:30 June 3rd,  we were dispatched to 666 South Bluff lot 307 for a reported structure fire.

First arriving units found a fully involved mobile home. Command immediately requested Mutual Aid from the Rockton Fire Protection District and the City of Beloit Fire Department for extra man power. Command was informed by the occupant that everyone was out of the structure.

We had two neighboring mobile homes that were threatened by the intense heat but due to the strong work by all personnel and departments that were on the scene we were able to keep the exposure damage to a minimum with melted siding due to radiant heat. The original structure was a total loss.

The fire was extinguished with no injuries to civilians or firefighters.

Thank you to SBFD personnel and the Mutual Aid Companies and also South Beloit Public Works.

Chief Mike Davenport
