Video from kingherodthegreat1 of an apartment fire today at 1412 Croxton Avenue, the Holiday Park Apartments in Bloomington, Illinois.
Bloomington and Normal firefighters battled an apartment building fire Friday and managed to save a dog at 1412 Croxton Avenue. The first fire company arrived shortly after 11am and found fire coming through the roof and called for all off duty Bloomington firemen while Normal firemen also responded. A reported of a juvenile trapped inside one of the apartments proved unfounded but firemen did find a dog that was crated in one of the apartments and rescued the dog who had an emotional reunion with its owner. Windy conditions also made fighting the fire difficult.
A Bloomington firefighter was slightly injured by falling debris, but no residents were injured in the blaze, which was reported about 11:15 a.m., according to Bloomington Fire Capt. Brad McCollum.
Flames were already coming from the roof of the two-story building when the first 911 calls were received, McCollum said. The fire appears to have started in an upper-story apartment on the west end of the building.
