None hurt in Naperville townhouse fire

Updated 6/12/2020 9:59 PM

No one was injured Friday evening in a townhouse fire, which firefighters contained to one unit.

Firefighters responded at 5:54 p.m. to a report of a fire at a two-story row of townhouses in the 500 block of Burning Tree Lane and arrived at the scene five minutes later.


At 6:09 p.m., the fire was upgraded from a "general alarm" to a "box alarm" and additional units were called to the scene, while others provided coverage at Naperville fire stations.

The fire was brought under control 45 minutes after Naperville firefighters were called to the scene.

All seven units were habitable except for the one where the blaze began, firefighters said. That unit had damage in its basement and first floor.

Four people evacuated the unit with a pet bird before firefighters arrived.

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted on the scene by the Warrenville and Downers Grove firefighters and the MABAS 16 IMAT Team. Station coverage was provided by Wheaton, Lockport, Westmont, Oswego and Plainfield firefighters.

The fire is still under investigation.
