Forklift catches fire inside Scoots Auto

A neighbor heard an explosion, saw smoke, and called 911 Friday evening. Streator fire fighters, just down the street from Scoots Auto, got there in in a minute-and-a-half. They had the fire out within ten minutes.

The fire department says a forklift caught fire. The cause is considered accidental. There’s some ceiling damage above the spot where the forklift was.
