The fire was reported about 6:30 a.m. Crews from the Long Grove Fire Protection District were joined on the scene by firefighters from Arlington Heights, Barrington, Buffalo Grove and other towns.
The fire apparently started in an attached three-car garage and spread to rooms over the garage and the roof, authorities said.
The fire was extinguished shortly after 7 a.m.
Route 53 was temporarily closed between Route 83 and Victorian Drive due to the blaze.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
Damage to the house, two cars in the garage and one car on the driveway was estimated at $275,000.
