A fire engulfed and burned through the historic Woman’s Club of Wilmette throughout the day Tuesday, Feb. 17. 

At 9:44 that morning, Wilmette Fire Department personnel responded to the blaze, which quickly destroyed the south end’s second floor and the apartment lived in by the club’s caretaker, Mark Loendorf, and his family. 

Loendorf was working on the first floor when he heard the smoke alarm and went upstairs to witness flames coming from a bedroom, where he said a space heater was running.
