Excerpts from the Daily-Journal.com:

A Manteno couple was able to escape a fire that heavily damaged their single-story home in the 1200 block of Oak Ridge Drive on the town’s southeast side on Tuesday (1/24/17).

Manteno Fire Chief Scott O’Brien said the couple called 911 about 3:22 p.m. while at the same time, an Aqua Illinois employee, who was in the area, stopped to alert them that the fire had spread throughout the attic and a garden shed.

The kitchen, living room, family room, and shed were all damaged.

Manteno was assisted by Bourbonnais, Bradley, Peotone, and Grant Park fire departments.
