IL FF INJURED IN FLOOR COLLAPSE AT BUILDING FIRE

     

Friday, February 22, 2013 A firefighter escaped serious injury overnight when a floor collapsed inside a burning bar and grill.

Ford County Sheriff Mark Doran said the Roberts firefighter was taken to Gibson Area Hospital, where he was treated and later released.

Doran said the firefighter fell through a weakened floor into the basement. Other firefighters lowered a ladder so he could climb out.

The fire at Bubba’s Bar and Grill, 103 W. Main, was reported by a snow plow driver about 3:30 a.m. Firefighters cleared the scene about five hours later, but the state fire marshal’s office has been called.

Doran said the fire does not appear to be suspicious. He could not provide a monetary damage estimate, but said the building did receive substantial damage.
