2-Alarm commercial fire in Evanston, 12-29-13

An overnight fire on Davis in Evanston destroyed a commercial building. Here are early cell phone images from Steve Redick and Tim Olk.

From the Chicago Tribune:

 

A fire that erupted at a restaurant in north suburban Evanston and spread to two commercial buildings early this morning is still burning and sent one firefighter to a hospital with an ankle injury.

Evanston spokeswoman Martha Logan said the blaze started at 2:24 a.m. at the Pine Yard Restaurant near the corner of Davis Street and Oak Avenue and at 2:34 a.m. it was elevated to an extra alarm.

Their response was further escalated at 3:36 a.m. when flames spread, affecting a total of three commercial buildings in the 1000 block of Davis Street.

One firefighter who suffered an ankle injury while fighting the fire was taken to Evanston Hospital with injuries that are not life threatening, she said.
