Fire ravages home near Warrenville

By Christopher Placek

A fire overnight Wednesday destroyed a single-family home near Warrenville, authorities said.

It took fire crews from eight departments four hours to fight the blaze at 27W173 Galusha Road before it was brought under control, according to Lt. Judd Weber of the Warrenville Fire Protection District.

Crews were dispatched to the scene at 11:32 p.m. and found flames coming through the roof. The residents of the home had escaped safely after being alerted by smoke detectors, Weber said.

No injuries were reported.

Weber called the fire "a stubborn blaze."

He said the cause of the fire appears to be accidental but declined to comment further as to what the exact cause may have been.
