The Five O' Clock Steakhouse, 1050 E. Northwest Hwy., is being considered a total loss, Chief Robert Kreher of the Fox River Grove Fire Department said in a press release. It took firefighters more than three hours to get the fire under control. There were no injuries, fire officials said.
A short time later a second alarm was called and departments from Cary, Crystal Lake, Algonquin, Barrington, Lake Zurich, Lakewood, McHenry, Nunda, Palatine Rural, and Wauconda responded. The Salvation Army also responded.
