3 Alarm Motel fire near Grayslake.
A three alarm fire caused heavy damage to the middle unit of the Doe's Motel in Libertyville Township. A Greater Round Lake FPD Ambulance returning from Condell Hospital was the first on the scene and reported heavy smoke coming from the roof and crews proceded to evacuate the motel rooms. The Grayslake FD quickly pulled a box to the 2nd alarm and then to the 3rd. A very long hose lay was dropped from a church located on Rt. 137 north of the fire scene. A Mundelein Engine Company supplied water to the fire scene while several Tankers stood by if needed. The fire was hidden inside the roof and was being fueled by high winds. There were no injuries reported.Read More
