A dead tree collection site west of Rockford turns into a bonfire overnight.
Five fire departments had to be called in. Tree debris from the July 5 storm had been hauled to a location on Meridian Road.
With all that dry, dead wood stacked on top of each other, it didn't take long for the fire to get going.
There were no injuries. It’s unclear what sparked the fire, arson has not been ruled out.
