Smoke investigation in vacant Winnetka store, 2-6-16

The Winnetka Fire Department was called for a report of smoke from a vacant building at 1075 Gage Street in Hubbard Woods on Saturday afternoon (2/6/16). Upon arrival, a light haze was visible in the corner unit of a block-long building with apartments over stores. This is one of the oldest sections of town and which has been know for several substantial fires in years past, so the alarm was upgraded to a Code 4 for a working fire. After a thorough search, the origin went undetected and companies were returned.

On a historical note, this vacant storefront was formerly a drug store and was used for a scene in the original Home Alone movie.
