The normal peace and tranquility of a Sunday morning gave way to the wailing of sirens and the high-idling sound of diesel engines as Beardstown firefighters responded to a house fire in the 1000 block of East 5th Street, Dec. 30.
The Beardstown Fire Department received the call about a fire at 1012 E. 5th Street at about 6:55 a.m. Sunday after a passerby had noticed flames and smoke coming from the residence occupied by  Debbie O’Hara and Michelle Walker.
