Kitchen fire on Marcy


Evanston fire units responded to a kitchen fire in a home at 2521 Marcy Ave. shortly before 9 o'clock this morning.

Fire fighters were able to quickly extinguish the blaze and there've been no reports of injuries.

That call came just about a half hour after units responded to a fire in an electrical panel at the Best Western Hotel on Sherman Avenue downtown.

Firefighters found the electrical fire had already gone out on its own by the time they got there.
