No injuries in Naperville house fire

No one was injured during a fire at a Naperville house Saturday afternoon that caused $150,000 in damage.

At 3:14 p.m. Saturday Naperville firefighters got a call about a fire on the roof of a house at 1227 Whitingham Circle.

When firefighters arrived the residents were already safely out of the house.

While crews went to the roof to investigate, additional crews went inside to check for fire in the attic. As additional fire units arrived, they assisted with the extinguishment of spot fires while others checked for further fire extension and began salvage and overhaul operations.

The fire was brought under control in about 10 minutes. The main body of the fire was confined to the attic and roof with minor amounts of smoke damage on the second floor of the home.

The damage to the residence is estimated at $150,000. An inspector from Naperville’s Transportation, Engineering and Development unit deemed the building uninhabitable until repairs could be made.

The cause of the fire is attributed to roofers using a torch to apply tar on the roof.
