Family Pet Passes Away In A House Fire in Machesney Park



Firefighters were dispatched at 6:25 am this morning (Feb. 16th) for a report from a neighbor that fire could be seen coming from the roof on Glen Forest Drive in Machesney Park.

A MABAS Box was pulled. First in crews did find fire coming from the roof and that the residents were safely outside. A pet dog was rescued and CPR and oxygen given, but sadly didn’t make it.

Crews are still on scene wrapping up the call and we will update with more photos and information as it comes in. Please avoid the area, Glen Forest is closed down.
