Fire damages Fox Lake business

FOX LAKE – A fire Saturday morning at a Fox Lake business caused about $90,000 worth the damage, according to the Fox Lake Fire Department.

It took firefighters around 15 minutes to bring the fire under control.

No one was injured, and nobody was in the business at the time of the incident.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Members of the Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District assisted with the blaze.
