Box alarm fire in Beach Park, 11-18-20

This from Jeff Rudolph:

11/18/2020 – Beach Park,IL
A homeowner was burning leaves when they blew onto the deck and up against the vinyl sided house. First arriving companies found heavy fire to the exterior of the home communicating inside, and into a detached garage. Command upgraded to the working still, and then to a Box Alarm. Crews were unable to make a safe interior attack. Two dogs reported inside the home, got out safely.
