Batavia fire officials continue to investigate what started a blaze that caused about $25,000 in damage to a home Wednesday afternoon.
Firefighters responded to the two-story home on the first block of South Harrison Street about 2 p.m., after a motorist called 911 after spotting smoke coming from the second-floor windows, according to the Batavia Fire Department.
It took firefighters just less than 30 minutes to bring the flames under control, but the fire caused extensive damage to the second-floor bedroom where it originated. The rest of the second floor was damaged by the heat and smoke, according to fire officials.
No on was injured during the fire.
The Batavia Fire Department was assisted by crews from Geneva, St. Charles, North Aurora and Elburn.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
