More Information Released on Libertyville Explosion and Fire

(Libertyville, IL)  A residential fire in Libertyville remains under investigation by several entities, including the Illinois State Fire Marshal. Officials say they were called Monday night to the 500 block of Golf Road, after witnesses described an explosion followed by a house fire. Roads were blocked, and several Lake County fire departments either assisted at the scene, or covered other area calls. After the flames were put out, authorities searched the home, but found no one inside…there were also no injuries to firefighters. A damage estimate still has not been released, but the residence was deemed uninhabitable.
