One resident was hospitalized for smoke inhalation after a garage fire Thanksgiving morning extended into a Buffalo Grove home, leaving it uninhabitable.
The Buffalo Grove Fire Department responded at 8:47 a.m. Thursday to the 1000 block of Greenridge Road for a report of a garage fire.
Acting Battalion Chief Jeffrey Morris said that fire crews arrived and found heavy fire and smoke coming from the garage of the single-family residence.
The call was upgraded at 8:53 a.m., bringing multiple area fire departments to the scene.
The fire partially extended into the kitchen area of the house, Morris said.
All of the residents were able to safely evacuate, but one was treated by paramedics and transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation, Morris added.
The garage sustained severe damage and the house is uninhabitable.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, Morris said.
The Buffalo Grove Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Arlington Heights, Long Grove, Wheeling, Northbrook, Libertyville and Prospect Heights fire departments.
The Park Ridge, Rolling Meadows, Wauconda, Barrington Countryside and Grayslake fire departments covered Buffalo Grove fire stations during the incident.
