The fire appeared to have started toward the rear of the home before spreading through a wall and into the attic, said Administrative Chief Perry Johnson of the Carol Stream Fire Protection District.

Johnson, citing preliminary reports, estimated damage at more than $100,000. He said a male homeowner was present when the fire broke out, but no one was injured.

Investigators remained on the scene Wednesday afternoon, trying to determine a cause.

Carol Stream firefighters were assisted by departments from several towns, including Bloomingdale, West Chicago, Wheaton and Winfield, Johnson said.
