2-Alarm fire in Lake in the Hills, 4-14-15

Excerpts from MySuburbanLife.com:

One person was injured and more than a dozen were displaced in a fire that broke out late Tuesday night at an apartment building in Lake in the Hills, fire officials said.

Algonquin-Lake in the HIlls Fire Protection District Chief Patrick Mullen said a call came in at 11:53 p.m. Tuesday from a passerby of a three-story apartment building on fire at 1363 Cunat Court.

[Firemen] initially arrived on scene to find the second and third floor balconies fully engulfed and started evacuation of the building, Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District Assistant Chief Peter VanDorpe said. “The building has sprinklers, without [them] it would have been much, much worse.”

A man had to be rescued from the balcony of the burning building and was transported to Sherman Hospital for smoke inhalation.

The fire was declared under control about 1:10 a.m. … and …it appeared the bulk of the damage was on the outside of the building … 18 apartments were damaged.
