No firefighters or residents were injured during a two-alarm structure fire Saturday in St. Clair. Firefighters were called to a residence at 1110 N. Commercial Ave., next to the Save-A-Lot near the intersection of Highway 47 and Commercial Avenue, just after 5 p.m. The St. Clair Fire Protection District originally received a call to respond to a first alarm fire, but St. Clair Fire Chief Tim Wideman said it was increased to a second alarm after the first truck arrived at the scene. The second alarm indicates an increased severity of fire and calls additional units to respond. Wideman added that the homeowner was at the residence at the time of the fire but was able to leave. “(We’re) fortunate that no one was injured,” Wideman said.
