The Evanston Fire Department was dispatched on Oct. 22 at 1:17 a.m. for an apartment fire at 721 Seward St. The first crew arrived there within two minutes and reported a fully involved apartment fire with extension to the third floor apartment.
Due to the aggressive coordinated attack by the Evanston Fire Department, only two apartment units were affected, rather than losing the entire structure. No residents or firefighters were injured in the fire. The fire is under investigation.
