A neighbor called in the fire at 6:05 p.m., and the blaze was put out at 6:24 p.m., said Roselle Fire Protection District Shift Cmdr. Chris Howell.

The small fire caused minor smoke damage to the inside of the two-story home, but the flames never reached the interior, Howell said.

Nobody was home when the fire started, and the cause remained under investigation Wednesday night.

Fire crews from Bloomingdale, Carol Stream, Itasca, Elk Grove and Schaumburg assisted the Roselle Fire District.

There were no vehicles in the garage during the fire and no injuries reported to an civilians or firefighters.

Officials did not have a damage estimate Wednesday night.
