No injuries in Glen Ellyn house fire
A Glen Ellyn house was seriously damaged Monday following an early morning fire, authorities said.
The two-story structure in the 500 block of Dawes Avenue was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 4:30 a.m. The homeowners were awakened by smoke detectors and escaped without injury, according to Craig Eldridge, spokesman for the Glen Ellyn Volunteer Fire Company.
The fire was quickly extinguished, but the house sustained significant damage. Neighbors from next door also were evacuated as a precaution, officials said.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
A total of eight area fire departments assisted.
