He says the house is still structurally sound, but some walls will need to be replaced. The house is a rental unit and a family was moving out, so there were few belongings left in the house when it caught fire, according to Palmer. Crews from Wood River, Alton, Rosewood Heights, Alton Memorial Ambulance, and Roxana assisted the East Alton Fire Department.
