Fire leaves Fox River Grove-area home uninhabitable
An attic fire Sunday morning left a Fox River Grove-area home uninhabitable, displacing its two residents, fire officials said.
The Fox River Grove Fire Protection District was dispatched at 9:49 a.m. to the blaze in the 9700 block of Gallek Road. Firefighters were on the scene at 9:52 a.m., officials said.
Finding the attic on fire, crews worked until they had the fire under control in approximately 10 minutes after arrival, according to the department.
No residents or firefighters were hurt, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation. Damage was estimated at $75,000.
The site of the fire is about a half-mile from a blaze last week that caused an estimated $2.5 million in damage and killed three show dogs.
Firefighters from Cary, Algonquin, Barrington and Wauconda assisted in fighting Sunday's fire.
Deputy Fire Chief Jim Kreher said the displaced residents are staying with friends.
