Officers rescued a driver from a vehicle after they had a medical emergency and crashed into a Mundelein home Thursday evening, causing a small fire.
The Mundelein Police Department, Mundelein Fire Department and Countryside Fire Protection District responded around 6:05 p.m. Thursday to the 500 block of Quigley Street in Mundelein for a report of a vehicle crash.
Mundelein Fire Chief Bill Lark told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a driver had a medical emergency and lost consciousness.
The driver then hit a house and there was a fire underneath the car.
Officers arrived and removed the unconscious driver from the vehicle, Lark said.
Officers extinguished the fire and crews checked to see if the fire spread to the home, according to fire radio traffic.
The fire did not spread to the residence and although there was some damage to the structure, the house is still habitable, Lark said.
Paramedics with the Countryside Fire Protection District transported the driver to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville in unknown condition.
The fire did not extend to the residence and there was some damage to the structure, but the house is still habitable, Lark added.
