No injuries were reported after a fire broke out in a kitchen of a home in Barrington Hills Wednesday morning, fire officials said.
The Fox River Grove Fire Protection District responded around 8:34 a.m. Wednesday to the 0-10 block of Burning Oak Trail in Barrington Hills for a report of an appliance on fire.
Fox River Grove Fire Protection District Spokesman Alex Vucha said firefighters arrived within four minutes to find flames showing from the front of a large brick residential structure.
The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) was activated to the box alarm level.
The MABAS box prompted the response of nearly a dozen fire departments, including Cary, Barrington, Wauconda, Algonquin, Hoffman Estates, Nunda Rural, Crystal Lake, East Dundee, McHenry and Lake Zurich.
Firefighters quickly deployed hose lines and attacked the fire from inside the home, Vucha said.
Firefighters were able to quickly stop the fire from extending past the kitchen. The entire home sustained moderate smoke damage.
Vucha said the fire was reported to 911 by an occupant of the home. The occupant and family dog escaped unharmed.
No injuries were reported to any of the firefighters. Damage estimates were not immediately available.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation but is not believed to be suspicious in nature.
