One dead in Fairview Heights fire

FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. – One person died Sunday in a house fire in Fairview Heights, Ill.

Firefighters were called to a mobile home in the 300 block of Union Hill Road Sunday afternoon. They fought the fire for several hours, but many difficulties due to the extreme ice and snow.

One person died in the fire. No information about the victim has been released.

Crews had to battle snowy roads and couldn't get a fire truck up the steep icy lane to the home. They are working their crews in shifts to keep some of them out of the cold.

The home is a total loss.

NewsChannel 5 has a crew on the scene and will update this story as details become available.
