Both the Waukegan Fire Department (IL) and the North Chicago Fire Department (IL) received calls during the early morning of October 10, 2015 about smoke in the area or reporting a fire. When companies responded, they found heavy fire at Waukegan Towing and Auto Repair, 1115 Elizabeth Street, which is very close to Waukegan’s border with North Chicago.

The alarm was upgraded to a Box Alarm for change of quarters only before being filled out to bring additional units to assist at the scene.
