Firemen Called To Thursday Blaze

R-T Photo/Seth Herrold Members of the Trenton Fire Department were called to a house at 312 W. 12th St. on Thursday morning, where smoke was coming from the west side of the apartment structure. Fire was discovered coming from the basement through the floor in the kitchen. The TFD, along with members of the Grundy County Rural Fire Protection District, were able to extinguish the fire quickly, with mostly smoke damage reported. Firemen believe the blaze to be electrical in nature as an electrical line was found to have come into contact with a copper hot water line, causing subfloor components to catch fire. Firemen were on the scene for approximately two hours. No one was reported living in the structure, which is owned by Joyce Overton of Oakland, CA.
