Fire officials say approximately $500,000 in damage was caused after a fire engulfed a home in Huntley, leaving its residents displaced Monday evening.

The Huntley Fire Protection District responded around 6:15 p.m. Monday to the 11800 block of Cape Cod Lane in Huntley for a report of a structure fire.

Firefighters arrived to find a two-story home with heavy smoke and flames showing from the front and rear of the structure, according to Huntley Deputy Fire Chief Patrick Fortunato.

The response was upgraded through the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) due to a large amount of fire showing and concerns of neighboring homes catching fire.

The upgraded response brought additional resources from neighboring fire departments to the scene.

Crews completed the initial fire attack utilizing hose lines from two fire engines and secured water from nearby fire hydrants.

A search was completed to confirm that the home was clear of all occupants, Fortunato said.

The fire spread throughout the two-story structure causing heavy damage on both floors and the attic.

Fortunato said that moderate wind conditions contributed to the rapid fire spread.

Firefighters worked for approximately 35 minutes with three hose lines to bring the fire under control.

Crews continued to work for another 45 minutes completing overhaul operations to make sure that the fire was completely extinguished, Fortunato said.

All occupants were able to self-evacuate prior to the fire department’s arrival.
