A box alarm was called to bring in additional manpower and resources for a fire that extended into the unit's attic, Streamwood Battalion Chief Bob Wysong said.

By about 6:50 p.m., the box alarm was struck out, Wysong said.

Two units were heavily damaged, as well as the building's exterior. Streamwood fire officials pegged the cost of the damage at $200,000.

No injuries were reported.

Units from the Bartlett, Bloomingdale, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg fire departments also responded. Investigators continue to probe the cause.
