Firefighters battle Starved Rock resort blaze in sub-zero temps

UTICA — Firefighters are battling a blaze at a resort near Starved Rock State Park.

Utica Fire Chief Ben Brown says the fire alarm sounded at Grizzly Jack’s Grand Bear Resort at 5:30 a.m. Tuesday.

No injuries have been reported.




LaSalle County sheriff’s officials say the fire is in the resort’s main lodge and nearby pool.

Aerial footage of the fire shows a large plume of white smoke coming from the resort in Utica, just east of LaSalle-Peru.

Utica’s fire command has requested salt trucks because of ice at the scene, where the temperature is hovering around minus 11 degrees.
