Basement Fire Causes $10,000 In Damage

NAPERVILLE — A basement fire caused about $10,000 worth of damage Sunday to a two-story wood-frame house at 1112 Summit Hill.

The Naperville Fire Department responded to a call about 3 a.m. of smoke coming from the basement of the house. When firefighters arrived, smoke was coming from the front door of the single-family residence.

The sole occupant of the house already had gotten out of the home by the time firefighters arrived, authorities said. The fire, which was found in a room in the unfinished basement near the utility area, was extinguished within 10 minutes, the Fire Department said. Neither the house’s occupant nor any of the 24 firefighters at the scene sustained injuries.

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted by units from the Naperville Police Department. The preliminary investigation of the fire is that it was accidental, but the cause had yet to be determined Sunday evening.
