A Galesburg woman faces several traffic charges after crashing into a home last week. Officers responded to Emery Street shortly before 9 AM Tuesday for a call of a vehicle having just hit a house and fleeing the scene. A trail of fluid was found leaving the scene north on Emery, then eastbound on Monmouth. Police arrested a 29-year-old Galesburg woman.

Officials say a massive fire at the Chemtool plant near Rockton was started accidentally. The June 13th fire reportedly started when contractors were replacing insulation on an elevated heat transfer piping network. The system heats vessels used in the manufacture of lubricating greases.
