Firefighters brought the blaze under control within 15 minutes and kept it contained to the master bedroom, said Lt. Vince Clemens.

The home's owner was taken to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital near Lake Barrington with minor injuries. She had already exited the home before firefighters arrived.

The fire caused an estimated $125,000 in damage. The cause is still under investigation, fire officials say.

Several departments assisted Wauconda firefighters: Lake Zurich, Round Lake, Nunda, Lake Villa, Countryside, Cary and Grayslake.
