I'm not buying it, MANY ppl living in a home that happens to catch fire while his grandson Jordin is home "attempting" to put it out? He's a volunteer FF. who knows more about fire them him?? He would know how to make a fire look likeca accident. Simmons being a mayor everyones good "think" of him as a role model person. Plus he is mayor a EC cop isn't gonna wrote a bad report. Insurance claim!

Sounds like bogus knows everything about insurance claims. Makes one wonder how many he has filed. Last I heard, in this country, one is innocent until proven guily. Doesn't seem to be that way with bogus. He can just tell without knowing the facts. What a guy. Until I find out otherwise, I wish Mayor Simmons and his family a quick recovery from the fire damage.

Wow!!! That's all I think I can say... Bogus, you are sounding VERY bogus 1st off & Jordin is MY son... This was purely an accident but if you as soo much feel different why don't you take your claims to Herb & tell him personally just what you think instead of sitting behind your computer & screen name to be able to spew ignorance...

Oh & in addition (though it's common sense to most) it's not the police department that will be investigating it will the Illinois State Fire Marshall's office & anyone who's had any dealing with a fire would know that...

If I remember correctly, this is the second home at that address that has burned. The first one burned and the Simmons family built the current home. So sad........... The first home was owned by the Tinsley family and was sold to the Simmons family. Just glad no one was injured.

You people are crazy! Herb Simmons is a decent man and Jordin is one of the nicest young men around here. He tried to save his famiy's home and just couldn't do it by himself. Accidents happen all the time. Thank God no one was hurt.

Wow. How can you even begin to judge someone who just went through a crisis? Do you have any idea what it is like to go through a fire?? You don't even know them and then talk negatively about them on a public page without having the courage to put your own name! Mayor Simmons has helped many families through thick and thin and Jordin is an upstanding young man in this community. Damn right he is a volunteer firefighter, and compared to a lot of the younger males in his generation and around this area he is doing well for himself. People like you either have no lives or are jealous.

Simmons family you have my sympathy and good luck on getting things back to normal.

VERY WELL SAID!!! Thank you dearly & I'm certain that everyone in my family appreciates your words... I know as Jordin's mother, I am VERY proud of the young man he is becoming...
