Emergency crews responded early Sunday morning to reports of a house fire in Baldwin City.

Crews were dispatched to the 200 block of Dearborn Street about 1:43 a.m. in reference to the fire. Units arriving on scene advised the two occupants of the residence had been evacuated and were not injured in the fire.

Douglas County emergency dispatchers advised the home was fully engulfed. Allen Craig, Baldwin City fire chief, said one firefighter was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation, but was released shortly after.

Hey, Riverdrifter... ;-)

You hear anything locally about the fire, since the LJW apparently has no follow-up info yet? Anyone know? Was the structure saved? Has a family been displaced?

Truth be told, the Signal is not really that much more dead than it always has been. The editor was let go a little over a month ago and now he sits around and blogs under several anonymous aliases. However, all the townsfolk know the aliases so it is quite embarrassing for him, but apparently he is blissfully ignorant of such things.

What's particularly creepy is that his aliases actually argue with each other and he likes to start threads and comment on them about how the Signal is in deep trouble now that it doesn't have an editor. If you haven't had the opportunity to experience the weirdness that is Baldwin City, I highly encourage you to spend an afternoon down here.

Of course, there is nothing about this in the now-rudderless Signal.

And no updates here, 12 hours later. Good job!

Uh, that's Dearborn, not Deerborn!
