At approx. 0824 on Jan. 28 Carpentersville Fire had a FireBox for a single family dwelling. UOA crews were met with a hot fast moving fire blowing out front picture window.
An aggressive interior attack with a 1 3/4 line knocked the fire in approx. 10 minutes.
The fire was started by an older child playing with matches before he left the home for school. The home suffered extensive heat and smoke damage.
