Vacant house a total loss after fire in Gurnee


A vacant single-family house in the 2007 of Belle Plaine Avenue in Gurnee caught fire at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and was almost destroyed.

Fire was shooting through the roof when the Gurnee Fire Department responded. Firefighters were able to save the garage and a small part of the single-story house, but it was considered a total loss, said Gurnee Battalion Chief Bob Heraver.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
