An investigation continues into the cause of a Saturday house fire that sent a Danville man to the hospital. Firefighters found heavy smoke and flames coming from the front and south side of the two-story home at 1204 Dakota Street when they arrived. The alarm sounded at 11:42 a.m. and firefighters were on the scene nearly four hours.
Thirteen Danville Firefighters responded to the original alarm, and two off-duty crews were called in to assist. Although the cause of the fire remained under investigation, fire officials say it appears to have originated on the first floor.
