Crews arrived and found heavy smoke and fire in the detached garage, which was occupied by two cars. Because the property is located on a small island, firefighters had to run 600 feet of hose line across a footbridge to get to the fire, Weidman said.
The blaze was extinguished in 30 minutes and caused about $50,000 damage to the garage, Weidman said. Its cause is under investigation.
Gurnee and Round Lake firefighters assisted at the scene.
