A Hoffman Estates home caught fire this afternoon, though early reports from authorities and neighbors appeared to indicate everyone escaped the blaze.

Fire officials arrived at the house in the 1000 block of Basswood Street in Hoffman Estates, just before 2 p.m. Wednesday to find a home engulfed in flames.

Authorities on the scene said everyone was able to make it out of the home.

A neighbor at the scene said one of the occupants was wheelchair-bound. He said this is the third fire in recent months in the neighborhood. While he did not know who lived in the home, he said he believed there were two occupants.
