House Fire Burns through Roof on Rosewood Dr, Hawthorn Woods


AUDIO WARNING: House fire video starts with loud fire dispatch tones.

Hawthorn Woods police and Lake Zurich firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:45 AM Sunday to a report of a house fire in the block of 11 Rosewood Drive Hawthorn Woods, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a rear deck was on fire. The fire quickly spread to the house.

When firefighters arrived they immediately call for a mutual aid box alarm to the second level. Fire burned through the roof throughout the entire length of the roof of the two-story home.

A family dog apparently woke up the family, who safely evacuated from the house. No injuries were reported.

There are no hydrants in the immediate neighborhood, but hydrants were located about one-half mile south. Tanker trucks shuttled water from those hydrants to the fire scene.

Firefighter/paramedics from Arlington Heights, Barrington, Buffalo Grove, Cary, Countryside, Des Plaines, Lake Villa, Long Grove, Mundelein, Nunda Township, Palatine, Palatine Rural, Libertyville, Wauconda and others assisted Lake Zurich firefighter/paramedics.
