Streamwood police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:07 PM Tuesday January 29, 2019 to a report of a house fire in the block of 200 Mayfield Drive Streamwood, IL. The report indicated that the home was evacuated. The first arriving engine company reported heavy fire coming from the second floor of a single family home.
Fire companies utilized several hand lines to extinguish the fire, which ultimately caused heavy damage to the second floor and attic of the house. Firefighting operations were challenging due to temperatures in the single digits.
There were no reported injuries, but two dogs died in the fire.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, and fire investigators are currently on the scene. Damage is estimated at $100,000.
