Rockford Scanner™: Rockford Fire Department Is Battling Another House Fire, Still Developing




Around 12:45 pm today the Rockford Fire Department were responding to a house fire. 

Details are minimal right now, there is reports of a house on fire in the 3308 block of Sablewood. 

There is heavy smoke coming from the structure. Everyone has evacuated. 

Two ambulances have been dispatched to the scene.
Note: Usually when two ambulances have been dispatched, usually means at least one person has been injured.
But we can not confirm injuries at this fire scene. 

Sounds like this is an apartment complex. 

Still developing. Check back later for updates

Rockford Scanner™: Police Warn Citizens Of More Fake Money Circulating The Area, Be Careful




Good morning Beloit! We hope you are able to enjoy this beautiful day.

We are in need of your help, and we have some info to pass along. The subject seen in the below photo has passed counterfeit bills at a couple of different stores around the city. The bills are marked “For Motion Picture Use Only.” The bills do look somewhat similar to real currency, but do not feel the same, and obviously the words on the bill are clear indicators of the bills being fake.

If you are a cashier, always take one extra second to look for those indications that the bill may not be legitimate. This subject has been rejected by some very astute clerks, but he has been able to use a couple of them. Please be careful.

Thanks for your help. If you know who the suspect is please refer to BE1820607. Thanks.

Sergeant Flanagan
