It can be argued that this young and bustling area north of the Loop is the face of Chicago’s great city nightlife. Lakeview is home to some of the finest pubs, restaurants, and theaters, with world famous Wrigley Field right in the center of it all. With all of these amenities, it’s not a surprise that Lakeview attracts the highest number of young professionals of the 77 outlaying areas, with the average age being 30 years old. While the residents may only know about the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 from history books, a fire in this area today can be potentially very damaging.
In a densely populated neighborhood like Lakeview, fire can spread quickly. In fact, depending on the circumstances, a typical house fire can double in size every 30 seconds. This means a fire in the kitchen can spread through a 1,000 square foot home in 5 minutes. With many buildings being older and built close together, time is of the essence for both firefighting efforts and fire damage restoration services. Don’t be a hero if there are flames— get out and call 911 immediately.
Smoke detectors are a critical component of providing early warning to fires, but statistics have shown that less than 53% of homes have working smoke detectors. This simple and inexpensive device can mean the difference between total destruction and lesser fire damage restoration efforts.
