ALTON - Alton Fire Department quickly extinguished a blaze on the front porch of a home in the 2000 block of Locust Avenue in Alton late Friday morning.

The 911 call to the Alton Fire Department came in just after 11 a.m. on Friday that the porch was on fire.

AFD did not have to contact any other fire departments to assist at the scene. The quick response likely saved the porch and the house structure was not damaged.
