4 Escape Unhurt From Naperville House Fire
Naperville Sun Times – “Naperville Fire Department investigators are continuing to seek theÂ cause of a blaze Tuesday night that did significant damage to a houseÂ on the cityâ€™s far south side.
No one was injured during the fire, which erupted about 8:42 p.m. inÂ the two-story house on the 1700 block of Schey Court, in the HawthorneÂ Woods area near the Maplebrook neighborhood.
Fire Capt. Tom Oker said on the scene the blaze erupted in aÂ second-floor bedroom. The two adults and two teenagers who live in theÂ house had gotten outside safely by the time firefighters arrived, OkerÂ said.
Twenty-four firefighters brought 10 vehicles and pieces of apparatusÂ to battle the blaze, Oker said. The first engine company to arrive onÂ the scene â€œstretched the (fire hose) line and got the fire knockedÂ outâ€ quickly, he said.
â€œThe fire damage was contained to the bedroom, and at this point,Â thereâ€™s a considerable amount of smoke damage throughout the house,â€Â Oker said. Workers from Nicor Gas and the city of Naperville were onÂ the scene, ensuring all of the homeâ€™s utilities had ben shut down, heÂ said.
Oker added the house will not be habitable until repairs can be made. HeÂ could not immediately provide a financial damage estimate.
The precise source and cause of the fire remain under investigation.”
