Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Barrington-Countryside Fire Protection District firefighters responded about 7:15 p.m. to a fire at a home along Ridgecroft Lane, just south of Spring Creek Road. Firefighters found a garage fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters shuttled water because there aren’t fire hydrants in the area. Officials said it took 20 minutes for firefighters to control the blaze which had spread through the attic of the garage and house. It appears the fire might have started in a golf cart parked outside the home though the investigation continues. The fire caused about $200,000 damage to the Barrington Hills home

More than 20 fire departments assisted in response to the blaze.
