Structure Fire - 250 S. Hicks Road
On Monday, June 8, 2015 at 8:37 a.m., the Palatine Fire Department was called to an activated fire alarm at Weber-Stephens, 250 S. Hicks Rd. in Palatine. The first Palatine Fire Department crews arrived on the scene at 8:42 a.m. and reported light smoke coming from north side of the manufacturing warehouse. The first fire companies stretched a hose line into the building for fire attack while additional firefighters searched the building to confirm that all of the employees evacuated safely. Once the power was shut down to the affected
area of the building, the fire was quickly extinguished and was isolated to a single piece of manufacturing equipment.
