FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. – Fire crews responded to a situation Tuesday afternoon at the SkyZone in Fairview Heights.
The Sky Zone is located in the 10000 block of Lincoln Trail. The fire happened just after 3 p.m. Tuesday. When crews arrived to the building, most of the fire had already been extinguished by a fire suppression system.
Investigators say the fire and smoke caused “extensive damage” to the building, which will now be closed for an undisclosed amount of time. Everyone inside the building evacuated in a timely manner and no injuries were reported from the fire.
Investigators say one neighboring business, Ruler Foods, sustained some smoke damage and will also be closed for an unknown length of time. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
SkyFOX, powered by Bommarito Automotive Group, briefly surveyed the area. Many crews assisted at the scene for several hours, including the Fairview Caseyville Township Fire Protection District, O’Fallon Fire Rescue and other departments in the Metro East.
Additional details are limited at this time. FOX 2 will update as more information becomes available.
