Mundelein 2nd Alarm 11-14-11

The Lake County News Sun reports:

 A fire that destroyed an unoccupied two-story building in downtown Mundelein appears to be suspicious in nature.

No one was injured in the blaze, but the building is being called “a total loss” by Mundelein Fire Chief Tim Sashko.

“We can’t call it arson yet, but it clearly is a suspicious fire,” Sashko said Tuesday.

The Mundelein Fire Department received a 9-1-1 call of a fire at 22 E. Park St., just after 11 p.m. Monday night. By the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the second story of the building was heavily involved in flames, according to Sashko.

Dozens of firefighters battled the extra-alarm blaze for more than an a hour-and-a-half before finally bringing it under control at about 12:40 a.m. Tuesday.
