Structure Fire on Custer Avenue
Submitted by the EFD

At 10:07 p.m., Sunday, November 5, Evanston fire companies responded to the 300 block of Custer Avenue for the report of a structure fire in a two-flat apartment building.

First arriving companies encountered heavy smoke coming from the rear of the building with smoke stains around the basement entrance. Fire crews forced entry to find a small contents fire in one of the rooms. Fire crews quickly extinguished the fire, and then ventilated the building.  All residents were outside the building upon arrival. After primary searches were completed, two kittens were found in good condition.

The alarm was quickly upgraded to a Code 4 response bringing extra Evanston units to the scene for manpower. After all fire operations were completed, the residents were able to return to their units with minimal smoke damage to the room of origin.

There were no reported firefighter injuries. The cause of the fire still remains under investigation with no foul play expected.
