House fire in Antioch Township, 3/4/16

Excerpts from

No one was injured in an early morning fire on Friday that destroyed a home near Antioch.

Detective Chris Covelli of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said police and fire were dispatched to the 40100 block of North Deep Lake Road for a residence on fire at 1:40 a.m. The home was unoccupied and under renovation. He said a preliminary investigation shows numerous space heaters were plugged into one extension cord inside the home and that the fire is not suspicious. The Lake County Sheriff’s Arson Unit is investigating the blaze with the assistance of the Antioch Fire Protection District.

Antioch Fire Chief John Nixon said a person driving by called 911, and that fire units were on the scene within seven minutes. The house was completely engulfed in flames.

Firefighters from Lake Villa, Fox Lake, Spring Grove, Grayslake, Round Lake, and Bristol, WI assisted at the scene.
