South Beloit firefighter hurt in overnight house fire
An early Sunday morning blaze destroys a South Beloit home and leaves one firefighter hurt.
Around 12:30 a.m., crews responded to the home on South Bluff Road. Once there, heavy smoke could be seen from the roof, and firefighters used thermal-imaging software to find the source of the fire.
Heavy smoke and water damage made the home uninhabitable.
One firefighter was treated at a local hospital for a leg injury after the floor partially collapsed.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
