From the Chicago Tribune:

Lake Forest firefighters battled a massive blaze that destroyed a Lake Forest mansion early today.

Eric Kositzki, a Lake Forest firefighter, said the blaze in the 1100 block of Keswick Drive started just after midnight, and firefighters finally put out the fire around 4:30 a.m.

Firefighters said the house was a complete loss.

Fire Department Battalion Chief Eric Montanello said officials are unsure what caused the fire, but do not suspect foul play.

Right now, officials are estimating the damage, and Montanello said he predicts it’s at least $1 million. Officials might not know for a few days the cause or the cost, he said.

The blaze took firefighters at least an hour to control as the roof and second floor were fully engulfed in flames, he said.

Officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.

According to Lake County records, the house is valued at about $1.9 million, and records also show the home sold in 2008 for more than $2 million.

Tri-State FPD house fire

This from Drew Gresik:

Hey guys,
I was in the area on Saturday 9/21 when Tri-State got toned out for a house fire in the 7100 block of Beechnut Lane in Darien. Got on scene shortly after the Full Still companies arrived on scene. Tower 529 laddered the roof and Engine 541 hit a hydrant. Small fire, not much to see except rig shots, but thought it would be interesting to send in based on the recent developments concerning the District. Thanks again.
