Pekin, IL Holiday Inn fire 1

Pekin Holiday Inn Fire

I arrived right as the fire started creeping out of the roof of the building.....It took somewhere around 20-30 mins before the fire crews started applying water to the fire....

Yes, it is really sad. I was the person who helped them design the property and renovate it. We were just finishing when this happened. I'm just thankful no one was hurt. Very sad.

Yeah, its a shame, this side of Pekin is trying so hard to become modern and keep up with the Jones'. I realy liked seeing all the new buildings going up and being a part of the growth of my hometown. Now we have to look at this disaster for a while.
