Glendale Heights fire displaces residents, causes no injuries

GLENDALE HEIGHTS – A fire at a three-story apartment building Friday in Glendale Heights displaced residents but caused no injuries, according to the Bloomingdale Fire Protection District, which services the area where the building is located.

Firefighters received a call regarding a fire on the rear deck of the building at 152 Gladstone Drive at 1:26 p.m., Fire Chief Jeff Janus said. The fire spread to the second- and third-floor balconies.

It took fire personnel less than 10 minutes to bring the fire under control, Janus said. Firefighters helped two residents evacuate the building, he said.

Although the fire was contained and the damage was not serious enough to cause the building to be permanently uninhabitable, the Fire Protection District worked with local officials to make sure residents temporarily had another place to stay, Janus said.

Damage estimates are not yet available, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation, he said.

The Fire Protection District was assisted by firefighters from Addison, Carol Stream, Glenside, Roselle and Wheaton.
