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


Tent fire with whole in the ceiling on the stage side of a party tent that appears to have been intentionally set overnight Saturday-to-Sunday.

Arlington Heights firefighters and police officers responded about 7:30 a.m. Sunday to a report of a large party tent that apparently burned itself out sometime overnight in the 500 block of East Golf Road. Apparently multiple sources of ignition were attempted at decorative corn stalks placed near large propane tanks used for heater fuel. The corn stalks burned entirely (except for corn cobs), but the propane tanks did not explode. Much of the tent was not damaged, but an approximately 6-foot hole was burned through in the tent ceiling material on the east side of the tent. The tent was in place for an Octoberfest party that was held Saturday. The crime is reported to have occurred beween Saturday, October 23rd, 2010 at 11:00pm and Sunday, October 24th, 2010 at 7:30am.
