1 Injured and Home Destroyed in Naperville Blaze, Fire Officials Say

Authorities say one person was injured and a home in suburban Naperville was destroyed in a fire Monday night.

The Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District received a call around 10:30 p.m. for a fire at 25W351 Plank Road, according to Deputy Chief Steve Dumas.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, Dumas said the two-story, single-family home was completely engulfed in flames.

One resident was able to escape the 5000-square foot house, telling first responders he got out through the second floor.

He was taken to nearby Edward Hospital with burns, fire officials said, and his condition was unknown.

No other injuries were reported in the blaze, which Dumas said resulted in the entire house being a loss, though he was unable to estimate monetary damages.

Fire officials remained on the scene Tuesday morning, putting the blaze out after about seven hours at around 5:30 a.m.

Part of the difficulty firefighters faced was that the closest hydrants were not near the home, but a few blocks away.

An investigation into the cause of the fire remained ongoing.
