Lockport Township Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the HeraldNews.com:

About 5:15 a.m. Wednesday, Lockport Township firefighters responded to a fire in the 3500 block of State Street in unincorporated Lockport Township. Fire companies arrived to find a vacant two-story building that had a one-story addition off the back. The one-story portion of the structure was found to have heavy fire through the roof. As the firefighters were stretching initial hose lines to the back of the building, there was an explosion in the two-story portion of the structure.

The debris from the explosion had caused minor injuries to a firefighter who was working on the exterior of the building. He was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for evaluation and he was treated and released.

Firefighters with East Joliet, Homer, and Northwest Homer fire departments were called to the scene and the fire was brought under control in about 30 minutes. However, the firefighters spent about two hours on scene to completely extinguish the fire.

Excerpts from the herald-news.com:

The Lockport Township Fire Protection District will hold an informational meeting for residents about an upcoming ballot question on a modest tax increase. Voters in the district will decide March 17 on the district’s first proposed tax increase in 20 years. The ballot question asks residents for the increase of 0.1% of the equalized assessed value of taxable property. For the average family in the district, that increase would be equal to about $66 a year.

District officials will provide more information on the referendum and answer questions at the meeting on March 4 at 6 p.m. at the Prairie Bluff Golf Club, located at 19433 Renwick Road in Lockport. For more information about the ballot question, residents can go to lockportfire.org.
