The Carpentersville Fire Department received a few calls for service, but none required a rescue.

Most calls were for medical services, and two people had to be transported to Sherman Hospital from the east side of Carpentersville between 1 to 3 a.m., said Assistant Fire Chief John Skillman. "At I-90 and Randall Road the roads were treacherous, they had four-foot drifts," he said. "They had to make sure to go around them and stay on the road to get to the hospital."
