VIDEO: Large smoke/header in the sky near Sears Centre Arena and Life Changers International Church at Plote Construction. Video begins with view from Payton Hill in Arlington Heights — 13 miles away.

Hoffman Estates Fire Department fought a large fire in a mulch and tire pile at the Plote Construction property near Interstate 90 and Beverly Road at Prairie Stone Parkway most of the day Sunday. Life Changers Church sits on the nearest property to the Plote Construction property, but was not threatened. Many people took time to watch the fire and smoke from the back of the church — many with video cameras and cellphone cameras aimed to the west. The header from the fire was visible as far as Arlington Heights at Payton Hill near Nickol Knoll Golf Course. The view of the smoke on Interstate 90 was an ominous backdrop behind Sears Arena and a Hoffman Estates water tower.

Fire departments from Barrington, Palatine Rural, Streamwood and others assisted Hoffman Estates Fire Department either at the scene or by providing fire station coverage for the citizens of Hoffman Estates.

A fire in April 2009 occurred nearby at Interstate 90 and Route 25 on the southwest corner of the property. Rubber mats were burning in that fire.
