Firefighters from the Tinley Park Fire Department put out a house deck fire early Thursday morning that was caused by a cooking device, Chief Ken Dunn said. No one was injured, and most of damage was confined to the deck and the device, Dunn said. Crews responded to a call at 3:48 a.m. about a fire in the back of a house in the 17200 block of 71st Court, Dunn said. Upon arrival, firefighters saw the blaze was on the covered deck, which was attached to the house, and were able to extinguish it quickly, he added. The fire appeared to have started because combustible materials were too close to the cooking device, which appeared to be built into the deck, Dunn said.

One person was slightly injured from a fire that damaged the second story of a house in the 16500 block of Evergreen Drive early Saturday evening.

Three people were sent to the hospital Saturday after a house fire in Brookside Glen. They were treated for minor injuries, officials said.
The two residents and one firefighter who were sent to the hospital over the weekend after a Brookside Glen house fire are in good health, village officials said.

"There are a lot of details to figure out and a lot that needs to be done after the fire is put out." The three were sent to the hospital on the afternoon of July 2 after a fire destroyed a …
