Working fire in Arlington Heights, 11-28-20

Arlington Heights firefighters were called to 115 S. Wilshire Lane on Saturday evening (11/28/20) for a reported fire. Arriving police and fire units encountered smoke in the residence and discovered a fire in the rear. The alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for the working fire which brought additional units from Arlington Heights as well as mutual aid companies from Prospect Heights, Buffalo Grove, and Palatine. Firefighters made quick work of extinguishing the flames and the additional personnel were not put to work and released before long.
