No one was injured in a house fire Monday in North Aurora that caused $50,000 in structural damage, officials said.

North Aurora firefighters blocked off a portion of Route 31 while battling the blaze at a two-story home at 20 N. Lincolnway. Three people lived in the house that was left uninhabitable, said Captain Eric Bunkofske of the North Aurora Fire Protection District.


At 10:42 a.m., North Aurora firefighters, along with those from Aurora and Batavia, responded to the fire that started downstairs and was contained to the laundry/kitchen area, Bunkofske said.

The fire was under control in about 15 minutes, Bunkofske said.

Route 31 between Oak and State streets remained until after noon.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, and it is not believed to be arson, Bunkofske said.
