At approximately 2:20 p.m., on Saturday, March 19th, the Lombard Fire Department responded to a report of a garage fire on the 1100 block of S. Michelle Lane.
The location of the reported fire is a two story, single family home with an attached garage. A fire near the garage was reported by neighbors, who called 9-1-1. Home owners were home at the time, and were able to self-evacuate. According to preliminary investigations, the fire might have been caused by disposed of ashes from a controlled fire. The estimated damage to the structure and contents is approximately $20,000 and there are no injuries reported.
The Lombard Department was assisted at the scene by the Villa Park and Oakbrook Fire Departments and both Addison and York Center Fire Protection Districts. Wheaton and Downers Grove Fire Departments as well as Glenside Fire Protection District helped by providing coverage at Lombard’s fire stations during the fire. Please direct any inquiries to contact Acting Battalion Chief Mike Heimbecker 620-5734 or Assistant Fire Chief Jerry Howell at 630-620-5736.
