Second 7th Street Building Burns Within a Week


Another blaze in Midtown Rockford early Thursday morning makes it the second in a week.

Firefighters were called to the 600 block of 7th Street around 4:30 am.

Several fire trucks were there, as crews fought defensively against the flames.

In the video we captured this morning, heavy smoke can be seen pouring out of the second story of the building.

Firefighters worked to make sure the fire didn’t spread to any neighboring buildings.

This is the latest in what’s been a string of vacant building fires in and around the downtown area.
