[ARCHIVED] Lombard Fire Department Responds to Structure Fire

Social Image Fire Department Update

At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Monday, March 29th, the Lombard Fire Department responded to the report of a residential structure fire in the 400 block of N. Columbine Ave. 

The residents of the house had evacuated prior to the arrival of the fire department. The first arriving crews found a large amount of fire on the south side of a single-family home and the fire quickly spread to the attic, due to extreme wind conditions. Lombard Fire crews worked aggressively to extinguish the fire, and to keep it from spreading to an adjacent home. 

“Crews on the scene did an outstanding job battling the intense fire, especially considering the wind conditions,” said Lombard Deputy Fire Chief Ray Kickert. The fire was brought under control in approximately 30 minutes. The house suffered extensive damage estimated to be over $100,000 and is uninhabitable. 

The Lombard Fire Department was assisted on the scene by the Villa Park and Elmhurst Fire Departments, York Center and Addison Fire Protection Districts as well as the Lombard Police Department. The cause of the fire is currently being investigated by the Lombard Fire Investigation Unit. 

Contact Deputy Chief Kickert at (630)873-4538 for additional information.
