Naperville home fire causes $1M in damages

A home fire in Naperville which started in an attached garage in the early hours of Friday caused $1 million in damages, but no injuries.

The Naperville Fire Department said in a news release it responded to a home on the 900 block of Julian Court after receiving a call about the fire just after 12:30 a.m. Upon arrival, crews found heavy fire coming from the garage, which was quickly spreading to the house. Areas of the roof began to collapse. That, along with the heavy fire, prompted a level upgrade, bringing additional fire companies to the scene.

The fire was brought under control within two hours. No residents were home at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the home has been deemed uninhabitable.
