No injuries in Elgin house fire
No one was injured in an Elgin house fire that caused more than $25,000 in damages Sunday morning, according to an Elgin Fire Department news release.
Elgin firefighters responded to the 300 block of Shiloh Lane just before 7 a.m. Sunday. The fire was brought under control around five minutes after first responders arrived on the scene, the news release stated.
Initial estimates of the damage are "in excess" of $25,000, with the home's kitchen suffering the most damage.
Fire officials believe the blaze may have started due to a "heating element" in the dishwasher, though it remains under investigation by the Elgin Fire Department.
