Fire at Crystal Lake condominium complex
A fire at a Crystal Lake condominium complex Monday severely damaged one unit, and smoke and water damage to other units left both buildings uninhabitable that night, fire officials said.
Firefighters responded to the fire at about 1:30 p.m. on the 1600 block of Carlemont Drive with initial reports of smoke coming from the roof of an attic area, Battalion Chief William Whyte said.
The condo was unoccupied when firefighters arrived, and no firefighters were injured while extinguishing the blaze. The fire was contained to a second floor unit and a unit above, Whyte said.
Police temporarily closed Carlemont Drive between Village Road and Angela Lane Monday while firefighters worked.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation. It caused approximately $350,000 in damage, officials said. The condo complex is two attached buildings with four units in each building. All eight units were uninhabitable Monday night, Whyte said.
Firefighters from Algonquin, Huntley, McHenry, Nunda, Cary, Woodstock, Lakewood, East Dundee, Carpentersville, Fox River Grove, Barrington and Marengo rescue also responded.
