Dumpster Fire Inside Warehouse During Renovation on Lakeview Ct, Mount Prospect

Mount Prospect police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 1:57 PM Monday to a report of a fire at a warehouse with a man trapped on the roof at 231 Lakeview Ct Mount Prospect, Il. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report of a warehouse with a man trapped on the roof.

When firefighters arrived, smoke was showing from the rear of the building and all construction workers had evacuated the building.

Firefighters extinguished a fire in a dumpster inside the warehouse and ventilated the building. Significant smoke filled the warehouse.

The warehouse was vacant, except for construction workers who working to renovate the building.

Apparently sparks from construction work when workers were cutting steel on the roof ignited dumpster content inside warehouse.

Significant smoke was still coming out of open doors of the building at 2:15 p.m. The mobile ventilation unit MVU-1 was called to the scene to rapidly clear smoke from the building.

There were no injuries reported at the scene.
