Gurnee firefighters extinguished two separate fires hours apart Wednesday that temporarily closed the Jersey Mike’s Subs restaurant in Gurnee and a fruit market in Park City.

The Gurnee Fire Department responded around 4:59 p.m. Wednesday to Marlens Fruit Market, 3406 Kehm Boulevard in Park City, for a report of a structure fire.

Gurnee Fire Department Battalion Chief Bob Heraver said the building is a manufactured home converted into a business.

The owner of the business called 911 to report a fire near the refrigerators.

Firefighters arrived to find moderate smoke showing and pulled a hose line.

They went inside to the back of the business and extinguished the fire, Heraver said. Crews then performed overhaul operations.

The store was evacuated and no injuries were reported.

The business is closed until repairs can be made. Heraver said some windows of the structure had to be boarded up.

The Gurnee Fire Department responded three hours later at 7:59 p.m. Wednesday to a fire alarm that activated Jersey Mike’s Subs, 6310 Route 132 in Gurnee.

After the alarm activated, a 911 call came in reporting a fire inside the business.

The store was evacuated and no injuries were reported, Heraver said.

Firefighters arrived to find an oven on fire and a dry chemical extinguisher was used to extinguish it.

Heraver said overhaul operations were performed and crews confirmed the fire had not spread to the structure.

The smoke was ventilated and the electricity and gas were shut off to the appliance.

The health department and fire prevention bureau will be following up with the business, which is temporarily closed.

Heraver said neither fire is considered suspicious and both are still under investigation.
