UPDATE: Investigators at scene of Coal City fire

MABAS 15 fire investigators are on the scene at 495 E. First St., in Coal City to determine the cause of a blaze that damaged the Lardi Chiropractic building just after 6 a.m.

The fire was struck around 10:30 a.m. and crews began cleaning up. Units were still on the scene at noon.

Smoke and flames were visible at the rear of the building on the west side. Mutual aid companies from several departments including Wilmington, Braidwood, Elwood, Mazon and Morris were on scene.

Firefighters went into the building, but were later called out. Tenders from several departments were hauling water to the site.

Crews were fighting the fire from the ground and aerial units staged around the building. Firefighters soon extended a ladder truck in an opening in the roof to extinguish the blaze.
