At approximately 7:10 a.m., on Monday, May 14, the Lombard Fire Department responded to a report of smoke in the building on the block of 100 W. Ann, near the intersection of Main St. and Roosevelt Rd.
“Upon arrival the alarm level was upgraded to a structure fire in this multi-family apartment building,” according to Battalion Chief Al Greene.
The residents of the building reported hearing a large ‘boom’ in advance of power loss to portions of the building and smoke appearing in the building. All residents were able to evacuate with no injuries reported. Fire Investigators have determined the cause of the fire is most likely a result of a lighting strike to the building. The building’s masonry chimney was also heavily damaged. The estimated damage to the building is $30,000.
Lombard was assisted by the Downers Grove, Wheaton, Villa Park, Oak Brook Fire Departments as well as the Lisle Woodridge, York Center and Oak Brook Terrace Fire Protection Districts.
