Small town fire kills five


Sherrard – An early morning fire in a small North-Western Illinois town kills five including four children.


The fire broke out in Sherrard after one yesterday morning. Even after efforts by firefighters, four children and one woman died in the fire.


A man and his two sons made it out safely and told firefighters five people were still inside. The man tried to re-enter the building but the raging fire was too much.


Investigators continue to sift though what is left of the home, so far no bodies have been recovered.
