Was on my way home from Monroe Wis at the fire school. Just passing Rockford, IL and the Clinton FPD (WI) pulled a Mabas Box Alarm for a house fire. Upon arrival they found heavy smoke pushing from the C&D corner, which was a back porch right off the kitchen. The building was a 2 1/2-story, wood frame house about 30×50.
Being a balloon-frame, fire was already on floors 1 and 2 and in the attic. One firefighter and the state fire marshal were called to the scene. Tim Olk
