Dog Trapped In Burning Home Rescued by Fire Chief

Grayslake, IL – Dog Trapped In Burning Home Rescued by Fire Chief

Firefighters rescued a dog that was trapped in a burning two story home in Grayslake on April 9th.  The home is located on the 400 block of Rock Hall Circle.

Neighbors saw smoke coming from the roof and called 911. Firefighters arrived at 12:51 p.m. according to the Daily Herald report.

Neighbors told District Battalion Chief Jim Weidman that the family dog was trapped inside the home.   The family’s dog was located inside a dog crate on the first floor and safely rescued from the home by firemen.

The blaze was mostly contained to the attic but the entire home did sustain some smoke and water damage according to Chief Weidman, so the family will be displaced for a while. 

The Grayslake firefighters were also assisted by Round Lake and Gurnee Fire Crews who remained in the scene until nearly 3 p.m. Investigators were on scene until nearly 5 p.m. but no cause has been determined as of yet.
