Mundelein structural fire leaves building uninhabitable
Mundelein - A two-story residential fire occurred early Friday morning in unincorporated Mundelein, according to the Countryside Fire Protection District.
Just after 4:20 a.m., fire officials responded to the 19300 block of West Lake View Avenue after receiving a report of a structural fire. Officials said crews arrived at the scene within minutes, and found a two-story residential working garage fire that had extended to the second floor living area.
Everyone inside the residence had fled the building before officials arrived, and one resident was evaluated for injuries, but not taken to a hospital, officials said.
Highway 60/83 was shut down for an extended period of time to allow for water to be shuttled to the scene, due to a lack of fire hydrants in the subdivision, officials said.
