CAMPTON HILLS, Sick (WLS) — A Kane County man is at war with the village of Campton Hills over an alleged zoning violation.

Homeowner Brian Larsen is now threatened with fines for the breach, which could amount to more than $22 million.

Larsen won ABC7's Great Chicago Light Fight in 2013.

The village insisted the possible fine had nothing to do with Larsen's actual Christmas light show, but told Local News Network Shaw there were 10 violations at Larsen's home and an adjacent landscaping company.

Violations include conducting an unauthorized business.

The village says it's about paying legal fees and preventing other abuses.

Last year, Larsen moved the show from his home to Goebbert's Farm in Pingree Grove.
