Fire Investigation Continues in Dwight

By Howard Packowitz

A fire that started on the deck of one home in Dwight and spread to a neighboring house may have caused more than a quarter-million dollars damage, according to firefighters.

The Dwight Fire Protection District reported on its Facebook page that it was called on Wednesday to the 300 block of West Williams Street.

Several area fire departments were called to help fight the blaze. No one was hurt.

Firefighters say there was so much smoke and fire damage to one of the homes that no one can live there for now. There was damage to the neighboring home’s garage.

Investigators are determining what started the fire.
