Fatal fire in Peoria, 10-19-23

Excerpts from

A 72-year-old man has died and two other people were injured during a house fire in Peoria.

A passerby alerted the fire station down the street around 6:55 a.m. that there was smoke coming from a house in the 3400 block of North Gale.

Both a firefighter and a neighbor sustained non-life-threatening injuries while trying to save the victim, and a dog was rushed off by animal control. The fire was put out within 10 minutes.

This is the first Peoria fire fatality in two years.

The damages are estimated at $40,000 and the house is reported a total loss. The cause is under investigation.
