The Rochelle fire department responded to an alarm yesterday evening at Suite 26 in the San Gabriel Assisted Living facility along Flagg Road.

A spokesmen from the fire department said that there were no flames in the suite. The alarm was set off by steam from some boiling water.

Departments from Rochelle and Steward also responded to a couple of grass fires along I-39 yesterday afternoon a short time before 4:30.
