Fire at apartment causes minimal damage

RANTOUL — Fire at a Rantoul apartment building caused minimal damage Monday afternoon.

Fire Chief Ken Waters said a candle caught a plastic tub of clothing on fire, which caused smoke to the apartment at 1532 Hobson Drive, Apartment 3, and the rest of the building.

No injuries were reported. Fifteen firefighters and two trucks were on the scene of the 5:52 p.m. call.

On any potential working fire, Rantoul has automatic mutual aid with Gifford and Thomasboro fire departments to assist if needed. In this call, they were not needed and were called off after Rantoul firefighters arrived at the scene and the extent of the fire was determined.
