Fire leaves Woodridge home uninhabitable
A fire at a Woodridge home on Tuesday was extinguished with no injuries to occupants or responders, officials said.
Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Jeff Toepper said the call came in at 2:14 p.m., and crews arrived to see smoke -- but no flames -- coming from the home. The fire was out quickly, and firefighters remained on the scene for more than an hour to help with cleanup.
Toepper said the woman who lives in the home was not there for the fire.
The fire's cause is under investigation, but it appears to have started on the home's second floor, Toepper said. The home is uninhabitable, but no damage estimate was immediately available, he added.
The Downers Grove Fire Department and Darien-Woodridge Fire Protection District both assisted at the scene.
