No injuries reported in Buffalo Grove house fire
No injuries were reported from an early afternoon fire Tuesday that severely damaged a home on the 100 block of Golfview Terrace in Buffalo Grove.
Police were at the scene first and reported seeing fire coming from the roof. Firefighters were called to the split-level, single-family home at 12:51 p.m., authorities said.
Fire departments in Arlington Heights, Barrington, Lake Forest, Palatine and Rolling Meadows assisted the Buffalo Grove Fire Department with the blaze.
Four adults were inside the home at the time of the fire and were able to get out safely.
Damage was concentrated at the rear of the house, which did not appear to be habitable after the fire was extinguished. There was also extensive damage to the roof, all three upstairs bedrooms and the bathroom, as well as smoke damage in the basement. Battalion Chief Joe Alexander said the damage estimate was $250,000.
Golfview Terrace was closed between Raupp Boulevard and Buffalo Grove Road from just before 1 p.m. until just after 4 p.m.
The Buffalo Grove Fire Department is still investigating the fire.
