Sunday in Oakley, IL
Don Morr Equipment Co. on East County Line Road
had a fire that destroyed the whole business.  Noone
was hurt in the blaze and possible cause was from
burning leaf embers that had blown onto the building
from some burning leaves that the owner had burned
just an hour beforehand.  Took 30 minutes to get the
fire under control and the smoke could be seen for
miles.  Piatt and Macon county units responded most
notably Cerro Gordo and Mt. Zion departments and Mt.
Zion had 1 aerial up.  Several explosions occurred
inside the building possibly from some oil tanks.  The
business was a Farm and Lawn Equipment company.  This
report came from the Decatur Herald and Review on
Memorial Day.

Memorial Day 4:14AM
Taylorville, IL Round Table Restraunt located at 102 E
Park had a fire that damaged 30% of the building,
mostly in the kitchen, storage areas, and part of the
upstairs apartment, with the seating area taking on
smoke and water damage.  Taylorville, Stonington, and
Edinburg units responded with a total of 30
firefighters.  Took 2 hours to contain.  Noone was
injured and the those living in the upstairs apartment
made it out ok.  This report came from the Taylorville
Breeze Courier on Memorial Day.
