Vacant house fire on Rockford's East side

The Rockford Fire Department put out a basement fire in a vacant home on the East side this morning

A lot of families get together here and there throughout the years, but one Rockford family that now stretches across the country celebrates four decades of reunions.

It’s hard to believe but the Rockford Fire Department has been around for 160 years and now we can see how firefighters fought blazes years ago. It's part of a new exhibit at Midway Village.

Part of Morgan Street in Rockford near the bridge is expected to close Monday for close to two months.
