Residents of three units in a Mundelein apartment building were temporarily without homes Sunday after a morning fire left their apartments uninhabitable.
Mundelein firefighters were called to the McKinley Gardens apartments in the 500 block of McKinley Avenue at 9:18 a.m. in response to a fire in a basement unit in the building. All of the building's occupants got out, but one resident was checked at the scene for smoke inhalation, said Mundelein Fire Batallion Chief Matt Carey.

The fire primarily affected the one basement apartment, but there was damage to two other units in the building.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire within 30 minutes, Carey said. Its cause remains under investigation.
The Libertyville and Countryside fire departments assisted Mundelein firefighters, Carey said.
