Fire near Des Plaines leaves six-unit building uninhabitable
An apartment fire early Saturday near Des Plaines left a six-unit building temporarily uninhabitable, fire officials said. No one was injured.
The North Maine Fire Protection District received the call at 7:28 a.m., said District Chief David Drdla. Firefighters took about 10 minutes to extinguish the blaze on the 10000 block of Linda Lane. While the fire was confined to the one unit, there was some damage to other parts of the building, Drdla said.
The Red Cross assisted in the temporary relocation of residents.
The cause of the fire, which appeared to originate in the bedroom, is under investigation, Drdla said.
