Upon arrival, crews encountered smoke showing from the rear of the house, and fire inside the kitchen, authorities said.

The fire was quickly extinguished, and crews ventilated the home to let accumulating smoke out.

The fire is still under investigation and damage is expected to be less than $20,000, according to fire officials.

Carpentersville, Cary, East Dundee and Fox River Grove fire departments provided assistance.
