Firefighters Investigate Possible Fire At Home North Chestnut Ave, Arlington Heights

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:48 PM Friday to smoke odor investigation or related incident in the block of 1700 North Chestunut Ave Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics responded for a possible fire at a house where no flames or smoke were seen. Firefighters checked a house with infrared cameras, and checked appliances.

Apparently no fire was detected at the house. About five hours later a large power failure hit the area after power line trouble occurred about ten blocks away at Thomas Street and Wilke Road at the border of Arlington Heights and Palatine. Residents appeared to be home at the time of the incident at 8:50 p.m..

No confirmation regarding whether the power failure at 2:00 a.m. Saturday might have followed a possible power surge at about 8:50 p.m. Friday.
