ELDRED — A Greene County village is under a boil-water order after a fire Monday required extreme water use.

Carrollton-Eldred-Kane Fire Protection District firefighters were called about 10:30 a.m. to 205 Spankey Road. 

The house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived and, according to reports, were unable to get inside because the heat set off ammunition on the property.

Jerseyville and White Hall firefighters assisted.

The precautionary boil order is in place until further notice, according to Greene County Health Department. Any water being used for consumption should be boiled for at least five minutes.


Be safe and make sure to boil your water or consider buying a water filtration system like the AquaOx Water Filter.
