From the BFD: 

Updated at 2 a.m. Tuesday, May 29

We want to say thank you to our mutual aid partners who filled our stations and helped fight the fire at Beloit Box Board. Our media release has more information below:

A three-alarm fire was extinguished around 1 a.m. Tuesday after crews from southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois battled a fire that was reported around 10 p.m. Monday at Beloit Box Board, 801 Second St.

One employee was in the building at the time; that employee safely evacuated without injury. There were no injuries reported to any civilian or firefighter.

Flames were visible from the roof of the building upon City of Beloit Fire Department arrival. Due to the space constraints in the building, equipment in the building, and the level of the fire, a three-alarm response was needed to safely extinguish the fire.

Thirty-three units from other area departments responded to the three-alarm fire in addition to crews from the City of Beloit Fire Department. Five additional units responded to back-fill City of Beloit fire stations. The City of Beloit Fire Department wants to thank the following departments for responding: Town of Beloit, South Beloit, Janesville, Town of Turtle, North Park, Harlem Roscoe, Rockton, Edgerton, Milton, Cherry Valley, Loves Park, Boone County District 2, Boone County District 3, Delavan, Elkhorn, Clinton, Sharon, Monroe, Rockford, Capron, Pecatonica, Belvidere, and Win Bur Sew.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. A damage estimate is unavailable at this time.

Free USA Flags For Veterans Graves

Location: Field Of Honor Veterans Memorial near Loves Park City Hall

While you are enjoying the Young At Heart Festival this weekend, walk on over to the Field Of Honor Veterans Memorial. Which is located just a stones throw to the North West of the festival grounds.

The free flags are for Veterans graves. When you pick one up, be sure to grab one out of the buckets.


Rickie’s Note: I had the honor of meeting the 92-year-old Lee Hartsfield a little bit ago tonight while at the Field of Honor Veterans Memorial.  We had a nice long conversation. He is a polite gentleman. He was putting flags into the buckets. Him and I talked for awhile. He was telling me how long he has been doing this tradition and the local boys and girls club helps him. And how at one time the tradition was almost terminated, due to the lack of funds. It was an honor to meet and talk to him. And a huge shout out to him for doing this!


Again this year, long-time Loves Park resident and former businessman, Lee Hartsfield, will continue his long-standing tradition of giving away “Free Flags for Veterans’ Graves” for Memorial Day.  Free flags can be obtained at the Field of Honor, located off Riverside Boulevard at 100 Heart Boulevard, Loves Park, IL 61111.  Please feel free to take one flag for each Veterans’ gravesite that you wish to commemorate.  Flags are available now through Memorial Day.  During the Riverside Boulevard closure for construction, from Tuesday, May 16th through Friday May 19th, the Field of Honor will be accessible from Walker Avenue, via River Park Drive or Short Street, through the Loves Park City Hall parking lot.
