On Friday, June 16, 2023, at approximately 7:55 p.m., the Lombard Fire Department responded to a report of a house fire on the 200 block of S. Grace Street. Firefighters arrived on scene within two minutes, confirming a fire on the second floor of the residence. 

Fire crews initiated an aggressive interior attack, utilizing hose lines to combat the fire while conducting thorough searches for occupants and ventilating the structure. It was determined that all occupants exited the home before the Fire Department arrived. The fire was declared under control within ten minutes of arrival, minimizing further damage.

There were no injuries to residents or firefighters. The Lombard Fire Investigation Unit is investigating the cause of the fire, and preliminary estimates indicate approximately $150,000 in damages to the home, which was deemed uninhabitable.

The Lombard Fire Department was assisted by the Elmhurst, Oak Brook and Villa Park Fire Departments, as well as the Addison and York Center Fire Protection Districts. The Lombard Police Department provided assistance with traffic and crowd control.  

"We appreciate the quick response and teamwork by our firefighters and the assisting departments to bring this fire under control. Ensuring the safety of our community is our highest priority, and we are thankful that no injuries were sustained," commented Fire Chief Rick Sander.
