A fire caused $125,000 in damage to a home early Christmas morning in Naperville.

There were no injuries, Naperville fire officials said. But the Will County Building Department will determine if the home will remain habitable, officials said.

Naperville firefighters received the call at 4:16 a.m. from a resident at 27W140 96th Court.

A general alarm brought 10 pieces of fire equipment and 24 fire personnel to the scene.

The first unit arrived at 4:22 a.m. and reported heavy amounts of smoke and flames pouring out of the attached two-car garage. They confirmed that all residents were safely out of the house and began to suppress the fire.

As additional fire units arrived, crews assisted with extinguishing the fire, while other units checked for fire extension and began salvage and overhaul operations.

The fire was brought under control in about 20 minutes.

The main body of the fire was confined to the garage, although the fire did extend into the attic portion of the house, fire officials said.

The cause and origin of the fire is under investigation.

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Naperville Police Department and the Will County Sheriff's Department.

The Bolingbrook and Plainfield Fire Departments provided coverage at two of Naperville's fire stations during the incident.
