Thursday Blaze Leaves Naperville Family Without Home

A city inspector has deemed a Naperville home uninhabitable following an early-morning fire. 

Firefighters responded to 1558 Chickasaw Drive in Naperville at 12:31 a.m. Thursday after a resident called 911 to report a blaze in the garage, according to a Naperville Fire Department press release. 

Firefighters first on scene found the south side of the garage on fire and brought the blaze under control within 10 minutes. 

No one was injured in the blaze and all residents were able to safely exit the home, according to the news release. 

The blaze caused about $100,000 in damage. The main portion of the fire was contained to the garage area with moderate amounts of smoke damage found inside the home. 

An inspector from Naperville’s Transportation, Engineering and Development (TED) deemed the building uninhabitable until repairs could be made.  

The cause and origin of the fire is under investigation, according to the news release. 

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted at the scene by the Naperville Police Department and Naperville’s Emergency Management Agency.  The Plainfield and Wheaton Fire Departments provided coverage at two of Naperville’s fire stations during this incident.
