A Crystal Lake Woman escaped her burning house on Woodstock Street after a neighbor notified her that her house was on fire.

Crystal Lake police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:40 PM Friday April 5, 2019 to a report of a house fire on Woodstock near the intersection of Woodstock Street and Evergreen Parkway Crystal Lake, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived to find flames and smoke showing from the attic of the house. A woman narrowly escaped the fire after a neighbor notified her that her house was on fire.
