Residents were able to escape without injury after a fire started in a bedroom of a home and caused $40,000 in damage Thursday morning in Crystal Lake.
The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department responded around 9:37 a.m. Thursday to the 1200 block of Boxwood Drive in Crystal Lake for a report of a structure fire.
The home was equipped with a smoke detector that activated, according to Crystal Lake Bureau Chief of Fire Prevention Chris Kopera.
Occupants in the home escaped without injury and called 911.
Firefighters arrived on the scene to find a fire in a bedroom on the second floor of a two-story, single-family home.
The fire was confined to the bedroom with damage limited to the room, Kopera said.
Kopera said the home was not equipped with a residential sprinkler system.
The fire was declared extinguished approximately 15 minutes after the 911 call was made.
The structure remains habitable following the fire, Kopera said.
Damage to the structure and contents is estimated at $40,000.
There were no injuries to any firefighters or residents.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation by Crystal Lake Fire Rescue fire investigators.
