One person was injured and residents were displaced after a fire started at a home near Antioch early Tuesday morning, fire officials said.
The Antioch Fire Department responded around 3:57 a.m. Tuesday to the 25000 block of West Woodlawn Avenue in unincorporated Antioch for a report of a structure fire.
Firefighters arrived to find smoke showing from the roof of a one-and-a-half-story residence, according to Antioch Fire Department Battalion Chief Ryan Keefe.
The Fox Lake, Spring Grove, Round Lake, Salem Lakes and Bristol fire departments responded to the scene to assist.
Firefighters worked for approximately two hours to extinguish the fire and conduct overhaul operations, which involves extinguishing hidden fires.
The damage from the fire left the house uninhabitable, Keefe said.
One resident was evaluated at the scene by paramedics, Keefe said. They declined transport to the hospital.
No firefighters were injured in the fire, which was reported to be in the attic and roof area of the home.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Antioch Fire Department along with Newport and Round Lake investigators.
