A fire left five Streamwood townhouses uninhabitable Sunday night, authorities said.
The first arriving firefighters found heavy fire showing on the second-floor, rear deck of the building on the 0-100 block of Adams Court, the Streamwood Fire Department said in a news release. Fire officials said the fire appears to have been ignited on the deck, but they were unable to determine its cause.
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.
