Bloomington Firefighters Look For Source Of Flames On Lakeshire Circle

The Bloominton Fire Department says it has yet to determine a cause for the fire that caused heavy damage to a home on Lakeshore Circle in North Bloomington Tuesday evening. But, Deputy Fire Chief Les Siron says damage estimates top $200,000. Flames at the residence also scorched the siding of the house next door causing $35,000 damage there.

The owner of the home tells firefighters he heard a lour noise and went outside to find a large fire on the east end of the house. Investigators have so far found flames began around the enclosure to the fireplace.

Residents were uninjured. A large piece of drywall fell on a firefighter, though, causing minor injuries.
