Lake Zurich firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:20 a.m. Saturday June 20, 2020 to a report of a residential fire in the block of 500 Carolian Drive in Lake Zurich. The first fire unit was on the scene in just over three minutes. Firefighters found a two-story single-family residence with an attached wooden deck on fire in the back of the home. The fire was extending into the first and second floor along with the attic space.
The residents were alerted to the fire by their working smoke detectors and were able to evacuate the house safely. No injuries were reported.
Fire companies quickly deployed hose lines and had the fire under control at 3:45 a.m. Significant damage occurred and the house is uninhabitable Saturday morning.
The cause of the fire appears at this time to be accidental.
