HUNTLEY (CBS) — One man is dead after a fire in a Huntley apartment building this morning.
The Huntley Fire Chief says a 47-year-old man died in that fire – and that the fire started in that man’s apartment on the ground floor of the apartment building.
It was a two-alarm fire that brought firefighters to the Woodcreek Apartments in Huntley about 6:15 in the morning.
About 40 Huntley firefighters were on the scene – and the extra alarm brought firefighters from 15 departments.
One firefighter was treated at a hospital and released.
The Huntley Fire Chief says the fire forced about a dozen people out of their apartments.
The cause is believed to be accidental.
