Illinois Crews Respond to Possible Explosion

CORTLAND - No one was injured Tuesday when a possible explosion in a garage damaged two homes in Cortland.

The Cortland Fire Department was called about 11:45 a.m. to 212 Juniper St. about a garage engulfed in flames, Cortland Fire District Commander Andy Bouchonville said at the scene. Flames destroyed the garage, as well as damaged the attached home and an adjacent house.
