Three Woodridge apartment buildings evacuated after cooking fire Wednesday

WOODRIDGE – What came in as a reported explosion turned out to be a cooking fire in the Windsor Lakes Apartment complex at about 11:26 a.m. Wednesday.

Residents in the three connected apartment buildings at 7411 Woodward Ave. were evacuated for about an hour.

Although there is only moderate damage to the building, 15 units are currently unlivable, according to the Darien-Woodridge Fire Protection District.

The Red Cross has been called in to help the residents of these units according to Deputy Chief Steve Gorsky with the Darien-Woodridge Fire Protection District.
