There were no injuries reported in a large fire at a building in downtown Wood River Monday night. Several area departments were on scene to support Wood River firefighters as they battled the blaze in a building in the 100 block of Wood River Avenue.
The building, which sits close to the intersection with Ferguson Avenue, was mostly vacant as tenants of the structure had been moving out. East Alton, Roxana, Edwardsville, and Rosewood Heights fire crews were also on the scene of the fire, supported by Madison County Emergency Management, Wood River Police and Alton Memorial Ambulance. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
