About two-thirds the distance on the spur from Dundee Road to Lake Cook Road, a large smoke header was clearly visible.

During the fire operations and clean up, the northbound Route 53 spur was completely shut down. About 50 minutes later at 8:00 a.m. the expressway was re-opened.

There is no report of known injuries.
