This is one of the town I patrol in. I wasn't working last night, though.

UPDATED 10:55 a.m. FORREST -- A 24-year-old man from Fairbury has been identified as the firefighter who died during a house fire in Forrest Tuesday night.

Brian J. Munz was pronounced dead in the emergency room of OSF Saint James-John W. Albrecht Medical Center in Pontiac, according to a statement issued by Livingston County Coroner Mike Burke.

The Fairbury fire department was draped in black bunting Wednesday as firefighters and state fire marshals continue to investigate the scene of the fire, which also caused minor injuries to another firefighter.

The brown, two-story house in Forrest is located in a residential area with many mature trees. Second-story windows are broken, but the house is still standing. The scene has drawn "a lot" of gawkers, according to a Pantagraph reporter at the scene.
