Watseka, IL – A Watseka residence was consumed by fire on Saturday, leaving nothing but charred remains in a harrowing display of nature’s force. 

The Watseka Fire Department reported to the scene, where flames had fully taken over the structure, marking it a total loss. While the cause of the fire is still under investigation, no immediate reports of injuries have been made. 

The fire was one of several incidents the department faced on Saturday. After extinguishing the blaze, the firefighters immediately shifted to aid in a brush fire in Woodland and respond to a commercial fire alarm. Additionally, they were called to the scene of a two-vehicle collision on Route 24. 

Investigations into the cause of the residential fire are currently underway, as the community reels from the day’s chaotic series of events.
