Bathroom ceiling vent fan causes house fire, resulting in $30K of damages
A house fire that ignited from a bathroom ceiling vent fan early Sunday caused $30,000 in damages and displaced the home’s residents.
The Naperville Fire Department responded to the fire in the 400 block of Quail Dr. shortly after 2 a.m. Upon arrival at the two-story wood home, they saw smoke rising from the exterior. Crews discovered the fire was in the second-floor ceiling and attic of the home, and began an interior attack, while creating a hole in the roof for ventilation.
Authorities said the fire was under control within about 20 minutes. All four residents had safely evacuated after being alerted by smoke detectors. No one was injured, but the house was deemed uninhabitable.
