From the Evanston Fire Department:
At approximately 4 p.m on Monday, Feb. 13, the Evanston Fire Department responded to reports of an odor of smoke and alarms sounding on the fourth floor of a four-story multiresidential structure at 725 Washington St.
First-responding companies encountered moderate smoke and fire conditions on the fourth floor of the building. Due to a well-coordinated and aggressive interior attack, fire crews extinguished the fire in less than 20 minutes, restricting smoke and water damage to the unit of origin. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Residents evacuated the structure before the arrival of fire crews. One civilian was provided medical care on the scene but later refused transport to a local hospital. No firefighter injuries were reported.
For more information, call or text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents may dial 311 in Evanston.
