A dog and a person escaped without injury after a fire that left a Fox River Grove house uninhabitable Friday morning, fire officials said.
The Fox River Grove Fire Protection District responded around 7:17 a.m. Friday to the 200 block of Liberty Street in Fox River Grove for a report of a structure fire.
Firefighters arrived on the scene within three minutes and found flames and smoke visible along an exterior wall near the foundation.
Firefighters quickly pulled a hose line and extinguished the fire within 15 minutes, Fox River Grove Fire Protection District spokesperson Alex Vucha said.
One person and a dog were inside the home at the time and they were able to self-evacuate without injury.
The fire had extended into the basement and kitchen of the home, Vucha said.
The fire extension caused firefighters to spend the next hour mitigating residual hotspots.
The home was deemed uninhabitable due to extensive smoke damage until repairs can be made.
Damage estimates to the structure and contents are still being evaluated.
Fox River Grove Fire Protection District was assisted by several neighboring fire districts along with the Fox River Grove Police Department.
The fire is not believed to be suspicious in nature, Vucha said.
The cause of the fire is undetermined but remains under investigation by the Cary Fire Protection District.
