Elgin Fire Department Battalion Chief Bryn McMahan said no one was injured, and the house was left uninhabitable.

Five fire engines, two ambulances and two fire trucks were at the scene. The fire moved swiftly through the house and the roof eventually had to be vented to help extinguish the flames, McMahan said.
