Structure Fire at 714 Seward Street


At approximately 9:16 p.m. on July 17, Evanston Fire & Life Safety Services fire companies responded to 714 Seward Street, a 2½ story frame, single family house.

First arriving fire companies reported fire in the second floor bedroom and the attic. The alarm was immediately upgraded to a MABAS   Box Alarm to the second level. Fire companies from eight departments in Division 3 responded to assist for station coverage and also on the fire scene, said Division Chief Dwight Hohl.

The occupants, who were at home and reported the fire, were having some work done to the roof of the structure, and fire officials suspect this to be the cause, said Division Chief Hohl.

With a quick response and strategic offensive tactics the fire was extinguished and the alarm was struck at 9:48 p.m., he added.

The Rehabilitation Sector was a welcoming relief to   firefighters who were also battling the heat.

The occupants of the home were displaced. No assistance   was needed from the Red Cross. No fire fighters were injured, said the   Division Chief.
