A fire at a one-story house on Ninth Street in Wood River closed the road to local traffic earlier today. Fire crews from several jurisdictions responded to the scene in the 700 block between Woodland and Edwardsville Roads.
Captain Leonard Revelle of the Wood River Fire Department tells The Big Z the fire was called in at about 10:15am.

He says once the Box Alarm was sounded, that brought in Mutual Aid assistance from neighboring fire departments in East Alton, Roxana and Edwardsville.
