‘Suspicious’ garage fire in Lake Zurich


LAKE ZURICH — An abandoned garage in northwest suburban Lake Zurich burned down early Friday in what the fire department is calling a “suspicious” fire.

The fire erupted about 4:30 a.m. in the 23700 block of South Lakewood Lane, Lake Zurich Fire Department Chief Dave Wheelock said.

The garage, which was filled with building materials, was on an uninhabited lot, he said.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but Wheelock said it was “somewhat suspicious” because the building was unoccupied.

No one was injured.
