Update: A report has been released that the Dollar General store had no fire sprinklers, which is a main factor in the aggressive fire damage.
Silvis, IL -- Heavy smoke poured from a Dollar General store on Tuesday when a fire erupted in an unreported area of the store. An employee saw the fire and helped evacuate co-workers and customers.
The Jewel-Osco next door was also evacuated.
Flames were contained to the Dollar General store, but smoke damage was reported at the tanning salon and Jewel.
The contents of the Dollar General store were a complete loss. The structure itself is still being evaluated. At this time, the Dollar General store is boarded up. Jewel reopened the following day.
