An off-duty Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District firefighter, on his way to work about 6:20 a.m. Wednesday May 1, 2019, rescued three residents who were unaware their house in the block of 5600 River Road in Lisle was on fire, according to Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District.

A passer-by called 911 at 6:20 a.m. to report a house fire, according to Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District.

The off-duty firefighter heard the fire dispatch reporting that three people might be trapped in the house, and arrived at the house before the first due firefighters. He entered the home and was able to get all three people evacuated to safety.

The first assigned fire unit on the scene within four minutes reported heavy fire from the back of an attached garage of a single-family home.

No injuries were reported.

Darien-Woodridge Fire District firefighter/paramedics and Downers Grove Fire Department firefighter/paramedics assisted Lisle-Woodridge firefighter/paramedics at the scene. The fire was declared under control by about 6:40 a.m.

Firefighters continued salvage and overhaul work at the scene until about 9:10 a.m. Wednesday.

The house was determined to be uninhabitable by DuPage County building department officials.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
