3-Alarm fire in Evanston, 1-28-24

Excerpts from

A large fire in an Evanston building left two stores destroyed Sunday night. Fortunately, it was unoccupied at the time of the fire and there were no reports of injuries. The fire broke out at around 8:30 p.m. at 1402 Greenleaf Street.

Fire officials said when crews arrived, the fire spread quickly and it took about three and a half hours to get ahead of it.

Four businesses perished, including two pottery shops, a yoga studio and a production office for Stuart-Rodgers Photography.

Fire officials said the cause of the fire remains under investigation.; #EvanstonFD; #fire; #SteveRedick;
