Known mostly for its bars and for the iconic friendly confines of Wrigley Field, Wrigleyville also has is a surprisingly thriving residential area. A housing boom in the 1980s brought older housing up to date and Wrigleyville today boasts quiet tree-lined streets, single-family residential homes, condos with rooftop views, and rehabbed Victorian greystones. This area is thriving and growing in Chicago.
When a home in Wrigleyville has a fire, no matter how small, this is serious business. There is currently no standard for how to stop a fire spreading from building to building, mainly because each structure is made from different components. The type of fire it is also makes a difference when it comes to how fast it can spread. Fire can move through ventilation (HVAC) units, windows, stairways, and even and across roofs. As proven in the great Chicago Fire of 1871, the effects of a fire in a densely populated area like Wrigleyville can be severe and can require extensive fire damage restoration.
Luckily, firefighting efforts are more advanced today, and more homes make use of smoke detectors and fire extinguishers. City code has been brought up to date, now requiring both homeowners and landlords to ensure that escape routes are available and clearly marked. Total loss and devastation is less common now, but even a small fire in a home or apartment can cause extensive damage if not remediated properly.
