Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 2:50 PM Tuesday to a report of a possible electric fire in a two-story townhouse at 392 Thornhill Court Schaumburg, IL. Firefighter/paramedics arrived within minutes and reported heavy smoke and flames on a stairway to the second floor.

Firefighter/paramedics were able to concentrate on extinguishing the fire because all residents on site — about 12 residents — were able to escape before firefighters arrived.

The fire broke through the roof (self-ventilated), but Schaumburg firefighters extinguished the fire in about 15 minutes.

No injuries were reported. Four of the eight townhouse units were uninhabitable in the fire that is under investigation.

Firefighter/paramedics had to take extra heat precaution with the high heat index weather for today.
