DEPUE — DePue firefighters and those from neighboring departments were toned out early Tuesday evening for the report of a structure fire at 1100 Rosehill Road on the north side of DePue.
“Less than favorable conditions with the temps outside and the location made for a challenging evening,” DePue Fire Department posted in a Facebook message to colleagues late Tuesday. “Thank you to all for answering the call. Always appreciated.”
Firefighters from neighboring departments helped battle a structure fire that gutted a garage.
Departments that responded to the mutual aid request included Spring Valley Fire, Ladd Fire, Peru Fire, Bureau Fire and Seatonville Fire along with Spring Valley 10/33 and Princeton EMS ambulances for firefighter rehab.
