CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Buffalo Grove Fire Department is fighting a house fire at 906 Shambliss Lane. Buffalo Grove Fire Department received a call for help for smoke in the house at 12:45 a.m. Sunday. Police arrived on the scene within minutes and reported smoke coming from the attic. Police also made sure the house was evacuated. Just before the first fire crews arrived, a Buffalo Grove police officer reported heavy smoke coming from the roof.

Heavy fire broke out of the house as firefighters arrived just after 12:50 a.m. Houses on either side of the burning house fire were also evacuated by Buffalo Grove police officers. The fire alarm was upgraded to an extra alarm at about 1:10 a.m.

Part of the siding melted off the front wall of the garage above windows. A large hole for ventilation is boarded up over the garage. Evidence of smoke damage and charring is present near several windows and attic vents. The front garage door was heavily damaged, and two cars parked inside the garage were destroyed.

Fire departments from Arlington Heights, Barrington, Deerfield, Elk Grove Village, Lake Zurich, Lincolnshire, Long Grove, Mundelein, Prospect Heights, Rolling Meadows, and Wauconda assisted Buffalo Grove Fire Department at the scene or for station coverage for the rest of Buffalo Grove.

No civilians were injured, but two firefighters received minor injuries. Shelter and board-up security were arranged for the homeowner.

The fire may have started in the attached garage. Thunderstorms with lightning passed through the area just before the fire call. Buffalo Grove Fire Department investigators are on the scene.

Mount Prospect Fire Department responded to a sparking transformer showering sparks in the 500 block of North Pine Street, and Arlington Heights Fire Department responded to a sparking power line at Euclid and Drury after the storm. The Arlington Heights power line trouble was a recurring problem from a storm earlier last week.
