The residents of one unit were left displaced after a fire broke out at an apartment building near Grayslake Sunday evening, fire officials said.

The Grayslake Fire Protection District responded around 5:51 p.m. Sunday to the John Mogg Apartments, 32927 North John Mogg Road in unincorporated Grayslake for a report of a structure fire.

Firefighters arrived on the scene within seven minutes, according to Grayslake Fire Protection District Battalion Chief James Weidman.

Fire crews entered the building to find smoke on the second and third floors.

Weidman said the occupant of the apartment that caught on fire was able to use a fire extinguisher to contain and extinguish the fire prior to the fire department’s arrival.

All occupants were able to self-evacuate from the building and there were no injuries reported.

The building had working smoke detectors that activated and alerted the residents, Weidman said.

Fire officials estimate the damage to the apartment to be approximately $10,000.

The apartment was deemed uninhabitable but the other units were still habitable.

The Round Lake, Gurnee, Libertyville and Mundelein fire departments assisted at the scene.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, Weidman said.

The Grayslake Fire Protection District said residents should have a working fire extinguisher that is serviced once a year and review their fire escape plan with their family in the event of a fire in their residence.
