One injured in Lombard condo fire
The Lombard Fire Department is still investigating the cause of a fire Friday morning that injured one resident who attempted to extinguish it in the Collen Court condominiums, Battalion Chief Art Peters said.
At 9:50 a.m. Friday, the Lombard Fire Department responded to a fire alarm at a residence in the condo building in the 1300 block of South Lore Lane.
On the way to the scene, dispatch advised that fire and smoke were coming out of a first floor unit, according to the Lombard Fire Department.
The incident was then upgraded by DuComm to a structure fire. Battalion Chief Ray Kickert upgraded the alarm again to a Special Alarm based on the type of occupancy.
Lombard firefighters and paramedics were able to make a fast attack and the extent of the fire damage was mostly contained to one residential unit. A resident of the building who did not live in the unit sustained minor injuries attempting to extinguish the fire, Peters said.
The resident was provided treatment at the scene but refused to be transported to a hospital for further examination.
The fire is currently under investigation by the Lombard Fire Investigation Unit. Damage is estimated in excess of $100,000 for structure and contents.
The Lombard Fire Department was assisted at the scene by neighboring fire departments including Downers Grove, Lisle Woodridge, Oak Brook and York Center.
