Officials at the Long Grove Fire Protection District are ruling a bedroom fire Tuesday in unincorporated Arlington Heights an accident and are exploring a possible electrical cause, Michael Schmitt, the district's fire marshal and lead investigator, said Thursday.

The fire occurred in an apartment building in the 2200 block of Nichols Road. Firefighters arrived at 9:28 p.m. after the unit's resident saw smoke billowing out of one of her bedrooms and called 911.


Alarms sounded in the rest of the building after smoke escaped from the third-floor apartment into the common hallway. Occupants in the floor's other unit left the building and were the only other people inside at the time, according to a news release.

No other units were affected, but there is some minor smoke damage in the third-floor hallway. The damage is estimated at about $25,000, according to the news release.
