Companies were dispatched to the report of a house fire just before 1300 hrs Sunday afternoon on the 300 block of Division in Lemont, IL.  They had heavy fire in sector C on arrival and the incident was upgraded to a full still.  A large amount of clutter inside made getting to the seat of the fire difficult.  Lines were stretched interior as well as a line that was used in sector C from the exterior in order to access the second floor.  

Eventually, the fire consumed the attic space in the 2-story and 1-story portions of the home.  Companies were ordered out of the building and into defensive mode.  Lemont Engine 921’s deck gun, Tri-State’s tower ladder and Lemont Truck 949 were put to work and the remaining fire in the attic was brought under control shortly after.  The home was occupied but the owner was out and returned home to find the residence a total loss.
