Police and firefighter/paramedics from Naperville responded about 1:25 a.m. Saturday May 9, 2020 to a report of a house fire in the block of 1700 Baybrook Lane.
Firefighters on arrival discovered moderate smoke from the chimney and roof.” Two adults and two children were evacuated safely. During an interior attack, firefighters extinguished ‘heavy fire’ in the walls of the attic, according to the Naperville Fire Department.
Fire command declared the fire under control within an hour, but firefighters were on the scene for more than three hours checking for extension and overhauling of the fire scene.
No civilian injuries were reported, but a firefighter was injured at the scene. No information was initially available about the injuries or whether the firefighter was hospitalized.
Although the cause and origin of the fire is under investigation, there was a fire in the fireplace earlier in the evening. Fire and smoke damage cause the house to be temporarily uninhabitable.
Crews from Naperville Engine 2, Engine 6, Engine 10, Truck 1, Truck 5, Medic 2, and Medic 10 were dispatched to the scene. Two Battalion Chiefs and three Fire Chiefs were in command of various operational sectors at the fire scene.
