Firefighters rescued a seriously injured victim from a fire at an apartment building in Zion on Monday morning. The fire spread to a second, smaller building, with the fire engine caught on fire in its own bay, the fire service said. Firefighters from Zion, Illinois, and the Illinois Fire Department's office attributed the fire's cause to a combination of smoke inhalation and oxygen deficiency in the building's air conditioning system.
Several ventilation holes in the roof were cut to let in heat and gas before firefighters had to leave the roofs for their safety. Messick said the third floor was ventilated with overpressure ventilation and utility lines to the affected homes were shut down. The Zion City Hall was used as a warm shelter and abode for the inhabitants. Residents were rescued from their homes as smoke was completely ventilated from the building and damage was assessed, the fire service said.
The Zion Fire Department was supported by fire departments from 25 communities, comprising more than 1,000 firefighters from Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Firefighters from Lake County and southern Wisconsin, as well as the Illinois State Fire Department and the Wisconsin State Patrol were on the scene.
Two adjacent units were affected by smoke and water damage, two units on the second floor of the building, one of which was affected by the fire, according to the fire service.
