At approximately 12:16 a.m. on Friday, January 25, 2019, the Lombard Fire Department responded to a report of a fire inside a single family home on the 900 block of East Washington Blvd.
Working smoke detectors alerted the residents to a fire in the family room. The residents immediately called 911 and self-evacuated the home safely. Upon arrival, fire crews were able to quickly contain the fire to the room of origin. There were no injuries to residents or first responders. Damage to the home and contents is estimated to be less than $10,000. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
“This is a prime example of why we remind residents to ensure that their smoke alarms are in working order,” said Deputy Chief Ray Kickert. “Smoke alarms should be on every floor of a home and batteries should be tested or replaced every 6 months.”
Lombard firefighters were assisted by the Addison and York Center Fire Protection Districts as well as Elmhurst and Villa Park Fire Departments. Please contact Deputy Chief Ray Kickert with any questions at (630) 620-5736.
