Shorewood Family Displaced by House Fire

The cause of the fire has not been determined, but the home is uninhabitable.

No one was injured in a fire in the 800 block of Abbeywood Drive Sunday night, but a family was left homeless.

"Everybody got out," Troy Fire Protection District Chief Steve Engledow said.

The call for the fire came into Troy Fire Protection District at 7:12 p.m. Ten fire districts assisted in the fire. The two-story home had extensive damage. Engledow said the cause was undetermined, but that it was not suspicious in nature.

Channahon Fire Protection District, Minooka Fire Protection District, Joliet Fire Department, Lockport Township Fire Protection District, East Joliet Fire Department, Wilmington Fire Protection District and Coal City Fire Protection District were among the departments that assisted Troy Fire Protection District.

i just want to know why people have to rip on infamous steve because he gives his opinions. Just because you don't agree with what he says doesn't mean you have to become childish and bully him. You may not like my comments either or i may not like yours. Am I saying sh**t about your mama?

lol Thanks Charlies angel...you know how it is haters gonna hate. It is truly funny when people think their comments get to me. If there is one thing I have learned over the years it's that I am a button pusher...love to push people to the extreme. When you get to be like that there really is nothing that can be said to get to me. Like I have said before, I am one cold hearted s.o.b.......LOVE IT OR SHOVE IT

I'm not trying to rip on Steve, I'm just trying to call him on his bs. He has no clue what he's talking about yet continually takes unnecessary shots at our fire department. My thing is, either go see what it's like or shut the hell up.

Isn't their job pretty much self explanatory? Fire burns, use water to put out. Now if they would let me go out on a actual call with them I might reconsider the offer. But just to go see equipment and their lockers...i'm good.
