St. Charles firefighters extinguish hot spots after vacant hotel complex fire – NBC Chicago

A day after a massive fire broke out at a vacant complex in St. Charles, fire crews remained on site to extinguish remaining hot spots, authorities said.

The fire was originally reported around 5 p.m. Saturday at the Pheasant Run Resort, 4051 E. Main St.

Several videos on social media showed flames pouring from at least one building and smoke rising into the sky. Some people have reported seeing smoke several miles away. The Pheasant Run Resort served the suburban community for decades, but closed in 2020 after an auction attempt failed, according to the Kane County Chronicle.

In an update Sunday evening, the Village of St. Charles said two fire department units were still on the scene working to extinguish hot spots. Firefighters are expected to remain on site overnight, officials said.

The cause of the fire is being investigated and no injuries have been reported.

All lanes on nearby streets remained open Sunday night, but city officials asked residents to continue to avoid the area and not stop at the scene.
