However, fire officials said, police in the vicinity discovered the smoke was coming from what's been known as a longtime vacant or abandoned two-story house. Firefighters found heavy smoke from the second floor and flames in the rear.

Crews used a defensive fire attack from the outside, said Golubski, because the structure was deemed unsafe for entry. No cause of the fire has been determined, but officials said there were no reports of injuries.

Lake Zurich received assistance from fire departments that included Barrington, Buffalo Grove, Cary, Countryside, Deerfield, Fox Lake, Fox River Grove, Libertyville, Long Grove, Mundelein, Nunda, Palatine, Round Lake and Wauconda.
