Fire In South Peoria Apartment

Peoria firefighters put out a blaze in an apartment in Landmark Apartments in South Peoria.

Batallion Chief Ron Jones says crews arrived at 711 N. Shipman around 4:00 p.m. Thursday to find smoke coming from an outside vent on the roof.

"The way these apartments are set up it was hard to determine what apartment the smoke was coming from," Jones tells 1470 & 100.3 WMBD.

"We went to apartment #10 first then came back to #9. By the time we got back to Apartment 9 we saw more smoke, opened up the vent and put the fire out."

"The way this complex is constructed (the vents) kind of go side-by-side and criss-cross each other," Jones said.

Jones says it appears the fire started in the motor of a bathroom vent in the apartment.

There were no injuries.
