Nearly a dozen fire departments were called after a large dumpster became fully engulfed in flames and started spreading to a commercial building in Libertyville Tuesday morning.

The Libertyville Fire Department responded around 10:18 a.m. Tuesday to the 2100 block of Tempel Drive in Libertyville for a report of a dumpster fire.

Libertyville Fire Chief Michael Pakosta said it was reported a large dumpster was on fire underneath an overhang of the building.

Firefighters were responding to the scene when they were informed the building was catching on fire.

The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System was activated to the box alarm level to bring additional assistance to the scene due to the size of the commercial building.

Fire crews aggressively performed suppression and overhaul operations, Pakosta said.

The fire was declared out in less than 30 minutes.
