Rockford Scanner™: Structure Fire in Rockford, Possibly Someone Still Inside


Theresa Bubrick Rawaillot To all the above concerned animal lovers…..the cats and dogs that were brought out were surviving, even this little guy, at the time I left….that is me with RFD ….he worked so very hard to keep him alive!

Nicole Burton This was my house, the cat is staying overnight at the vet. Everyone is safe. But my cat ran away out of the firefighters arms so if you see her let me know.

Sources are reporting another structure fire.

This one happened in the 600 block of 2nd st in Rockford around 3 pm.

Reports of the residence on fire and someone possibly still inside on the 2nd floor.

RFD arrived on scene are were laying a booster line and were going offensive. There was smoke and flames showing.

Sounds like an animal has been injured, possibly fatally.

Still developing.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

UPDATE: They have upgraded this to a 2nd alarm fire.
More units are en route. A cat has been rescued and RFD are trying to revive it.  We been told a person was possibly injured, but not confirmed yet.
