Near Rolling Prairie.,....fire damage could have been much worse had the

flames not melted a water line.

Yesterday.....firefighters responded to a home in the area of 700 North and

300 East.

Smoke was pouring from the residence....

Kankakee Township fire chief Don Stoner says clothes too close to the

hot water heater caught fire.

The fire was doused for the most part by a water line springing a leak from

getting melted by the flames.

A man alone inside the home got out safely.

Stoner says there was just a small amount of fire damage.
