    [CHI] Townhome Collapses in Fire Sparked by Car Crash
    Authorities say the family who lives in the home had just minutes to get out. Regina Waldroup reports.

    Two townhomes in the Lake County subdivision on the 400 block of Patriot Drive were deemed uninhabitable after a massive fire sparked when a car crashed into the building.

    One of the townhomes in Hainesville completely collapsed in the fire.

    Authorities initially called a "code black," indicating a fatality, but that was later removed.

    Police allege Bileck initially ran from police and was later found in a nearby pond.

    He was transported to the hospital and was treated for hypothermia.

    The people inside the home were able to escape without injury. Police said they believe the fire started because the vehicle sheered off the top of a gas main.

    The Racho family lost their home and much of their belongings in the fire.

    A fundraiser on YouCaring.com, which has raised more than $9,000 for the family, says the Racho family did not have insurance to cover their personal belongings.
