Palatine police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 12:53 AM Friday to a report of a house fire in the block of 100 Imperial Court Palatine, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report of a house fire from neighbor’s address. Police arrived first and confirmed a working fire and provided a corrected address.
Firefighters received several calls of a fire at the rear of a house, and discovered a fire involving a hot tub outside at the rear deck of the house. Firefighters had water on the fire by about 1:01 a.m. At first look it did not appear that the fire spread to the interior of the home, and within a few minutes firefighters confirmed that the fire did not extend into the house.
The fire was marked under control by about 1:07 a.m.
A second house fire call was received about 1:02 in the 200 block of South Elmwood Avenue in Palatine. A small heater “lit up” in a rear porch, but did not extend to the house or the porch. Some light smoke or haze was in the house, and firefighters worked on ventilating the house and securing the heater. Firefighters also checked carefully for extension into the home on Elmwood Avenue, and found no extension into the house.
Arlington Heights firefighters assisted Palatine firefighters at the Elmwood address. Firefighters were working on securing the heater by about 1:27 a.m.
