On Friday February 7, 2020 just before 5pm, the Antioch Fire Department responded to a report of a structure fire in the 300 block of Sequoia. On arrival, crews encountered heavy smoke coming from the structure. Crews immediately deployed hand lines and entered the structure. Crews were faced with heavy fire on the first and second floors. As the fire progressed, the fire was elevated to a second alarm, bringing in other departments and their equipment from around Lake County and Wisconsin. The fire had extended into the attic space requiring an elevated master stream to be used to knock down the body of the fire. Crews then reentered the home continued with the interior attack and overhaul. “Crews fire attack was extremely challenging due to the arrangement and the amount of personal property in the residence.” The fire was brought under control in about an hour. Crews remained on the scene overhauling and searching for hot spots until just before 10pm in this labor-intensive fire. While there were no firefighter or civilian injuries, sadly 3 family pets expired in the fire. The home is deemed uninhabitable for the residents and remains under investigation. Estimated losses are in excess of $300,000. Departments covering the District handled 2 additional medical calls during the fire. “We would like to express our sincere thanks to our neighboring departments in Lake County and Wisconsin for their assistance in handling this incident.”
