Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 7:00 PM Tuesday to a report of an explosion and fire in the parking garage just south of North School Park at 155 East Eastman Street Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics discovered that an unknown offender or offenders ignited a piece of luggage which was locked to a bicycle that was chained to a garage support cable. The luggage contained a female homeless victim’s clothing, and toiletries — including aerosol cans of insect repellant, hairspray and shaving cream, books and an electric hair dryer. Apparently the shaving cream can exploded in the luggage. The white Sears women’s 21sp bike was valued at $200 and the luggage was valued at $100. Two nearby vehicles ended up with a film of smoke and fire retardant material on them. It is unknown if it caused any damage involving a loss or expense to repair.
Police had all entrances/exits blocked at the parking garage during investigation until about 8:15 p.m.
