Authorities in north-central Illinois have identified the young girl who died after a fatal home fire in Streator. The LaSalle County coroner's office says firefighters pulled 3-year-old Saranadee Green-Libby from her bedroom in the four-unit apartment building Sunday. The girl later was pronounced dead at St. Mary's Hospital. Fire Chief Tom Risley says it took firefighters 15 to 20 minutes to knock down the bulk of the fire, which involved the northeastern corner of the two-story building. The Illinois State Fire Marshal's office is also investigating.
