Several area fire departments respond to a three-alarm blaze in Loves Park Tuesday afternoon.
The fire started in an upstairs storage room in a two story home. The structure is in the 8700 block of Harlem Road and has been abandoned for the past two years.
Crews were able to strike down the flames quickly but drivers were inconvenienced for a bit longer.
The stretch of Harlem Road between Paulson Road and Argyle was closed for several hours.
