(Bolingbrook) Police Blotter

Ah, irony...sweet, delectable, scrumptious irony.
Exit sign sparks fire in Bolingbrook
BOLINGBROOK -- An electrical failure in an exit sign and exterior light caused a fire in an apartment building Wednesday afternoon.

Battalion Chief Trinedad Garza said the fire started around 3:03 p.m. in the apartment building at 501 Preston off of Boughton Road.

Firefighters had to evacuate the west side of the complex, but had residents back in their apartments in about an hour.

Firefighters had to pull down some ceilings and clear out smoke. There were no injuries and no one was displaced, Garza said.
Yes, I had to stray outside of Joliet for this police blotter item, but at least it still appeared in the Herald-News. So it counts.
