The Evanston Fire Department was dispatched at 12:27 p.m. on Oct. October 27 to put out a fire at 2428 Prospect Ave. First arriving fire companies reported a basement fire traveling up the interior walls of the structure. The response was upgraded to a Box Alarm to the Box level, bringing in other municipalities for manpower and cover companies for the City of Evanston.

Due to the aggressive fire attack by all working companies the fire was extinguished with moderate damage to the home. The Evanston Fire Investigators on scene are leaning towards an electrical fire with further investigation underway.
