At around 9:00 am 2/17/01 in Illinois, the Ashton Fire Department responded to a structure fire. Upon arrival, They found the fire to be in the basement and attic. From what I understand, they sent 2 downstairs and 2 in to access the attic. An explosion occurred and the first floor callapsed into the basement trapping 2 below. The other 2 made it out and were flown to the hospital and treated for burns and smoke inhalation. The other 2 were found later. Ashton is a nieghboring town and we were at a false alarm when we were due for mutual aid, otherwise I would know more details. Our 2 Brothers are as follows: Firefighters, Clint Talley/age 27 Mike McKean/age 32.
