This from John Tulipano:

Carol Stream had a special alarm at 1337 Lance, came in as a fully-involved attached garage. Companies reported this as they arrived. When I arrived heavy smoke was pushing out the garage and 2nd floor. Companies were initiating an interior attack. After several minutes Deputy Chief 28 (Bob Hoff) ordered all companies out of the building as they had fire in the basement as well as the second floor. Flames were visible from the attic just as soon as Bloomingdale TL 23 vented the roof. An exterior attack was started using 4 hand lines  to control the fire.
