Buffalo Grove firefighters were called to 1062 Harvard Lane in the early morning hours of September 6th for smoke in the house. The area had been hit hard earlier in the day by a fast moving storm that knocked out power to many homes including this one. Thick black smoke met the first arriving companies who quickly found a small fire in the basement, but not before the entire house was charged with smoke. Here are a few images and a short video from the scene
