Officials investigating Palatine garage fire
Palatine fire officials are investigating the cause of a garage fire Saturday morning in the 600 block of South Warren Avenue.
Fire crews responding to the fire at 9:47 a.m. found smoke pouring from the detached garage of a home, according to the Palatine Fire Department. The first fire companies to arrive pulled a hose line and attacked the fire, while other firefighters stretched a supply line to a fire hydrant and pulled an additional hose line.
Other firefighters forced entry through the garage to expose the fire, while crews accessed the attic and roof to vent smoke, heat and fire gases and attack fire that had extended into the attic, fire officials said.
Firefighters had the fire under control at 9:57 a.m., officials said. No civilians or firefighters were injured. The garage sustained heavy damage, but investigators have yet to determine a cost estimate.
The fire was fought by 22 firefighters, staffing three engines, two ladder trucks, one rescue squad and three ambulances, according to the fire department. Other departments fighting the fire included Arlington Heights, while Long Grove firefighters provided coverage at a Palatine fire station. Palatine police officers assisted at the scene with traffic and crowd control.
