One person suffered minor injuries after a fire engulfed a garage and multiple vehicles in Zion Tuesday evening, fire officials said.
The Zion Fire-Rescue Department responded around 10:32 p.m. Tuesday to the 2100 block of Ezekiel Avenue in Zion for a report of a structure fire.
Zion Fire-Rescue Department Fire Chief Justin Stried told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that crews arrived to find a garage and multiple vehicles engulfed in flames.
The alarm was upgraded to the working still level, bringing in Beach Park, Newport, Pleasant Prairie, Gurnee and Winthrop Harbor fire departments to the scene.
The fire was brought under control in approximately an hour, Stried said. Crews performed overhaul and cleanup for an additional hour.
Route 173 was shut down for almost two hours and the Zion Police Department and Zion ESDA assisted by providing traffic control.
Stried said it appears the fire was accidental in nature and possibly caused by vehicle maintenance work in the garage.
One occupant was treated for minor injuries and was assessed and treated by paramedics at the scene.
The victim declined transport to a local hospital.
The North Chicago and Libertyville fire departments covered calls in Zion during the fire.
