Commercial fire in Lake Zurich, 3-30-21

Lake Zurich firefighters were dispatched to a fire Monday night at the Burger King Restaurant, 642 S. Rand Road. Smoke was visible on arrival by the main door of the newly remodeled building. After hitting a fire on the exterior of the building, fire spread to an area behind a parapet and flames were visible from the roof. The alarm was upgraded to a MABAS Box Alarm for additional resources. Aerial master streams were deployed from the Wauconda Tower 341 and Buffalo Grove Quint 27. Firefighters on the roof then finished mopping up the area.

A partial list of companies at the scene included four Lake Zurich engines plus engines from Fox River Grove, Countryside, Wheeling and Palatine. Trucks from Wauconda, Buffalo Grove, and Arlington Heights. Squads from Long Grove, Cary, and Libertyville. Ambulances from Barrington, Barrington-Countryside, Palatine Rural and Nunda Rural.
