The worker was doing maintenance on the house and was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, fire officials said.

Firefighters extinguished the flames within about five minutes but remained on the scene for cleanup, officials said.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation, officials said, adding they do not yet have a cost estimate for the damage.

Smoke traveled to the first floor of the home, but it remains habitable.

Firefighters from departments in Mundelein and Countryside assisted at the scene.
