Excerpts from

In the darkness that comes earlier these days, flames lit up the sky for miles in Kildeer following a massive fire.

A multi-story home caught fire and is uninhabitable. The structure may be a total loss. The size of the fire necessitated a mutual aid response from a dozen neighboring communities. Firefighters used a dry hydrant where water is pulled from retention ponds because there are no fire hydrants in the area.

Lake Zurich Fire Chief David Pilgrad says that given the flames’ intensity, the exterior side of one of the adjacent homes had to be drenched as a precaution.

Everyone made it out of the home safely and did not require emergency care or hospitalization. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

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.

Lake Zurich Fire Department news

Excerpts from the

Firefighters rescued six ducklings from a sewer Thursday afternoon in Lake Zurich and reunited them with their mom after a resident called to report the ducklings were trapped in a sewer at 235 S. Rand Road.

Firefighters removed one manhole cover and were able to reach five of ducklings. The sixth duckling had walked down a sewer pipe, so firefighters had to remove a second manhole cover.

The ducklings’ mother had a nest nearby.
