Fire Causes $45,000 in Damage to Naperville Home

No injuries were reported after crews from the Naperville Fire Department and Bolingbrook Fire Department quickly extinguished a residential fire Tuesday afternoon.

Naperville firefighters quickly extinguished a fire to a home at 1141 Marshall Ct. Tuesday afternoon, according to the Naperville Fire Department. 

No one was injured in the fire, which caused an estimated $45,000 in damage to an attached garage and a vehicle inside the garage of a two-story home. Crews were dispatched after Naperville’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) received a 911 call at 4:13 p.m. from a resident who said their house was on fire.

When the first unit arrived to the scene, they reported smoke and flames pouring out of the attached two-car garage, according to the Naperville Fire Department.

Crews extinguished the fire within five minutes while the residents were safely outside the home. 

A total of 25 fire personnel were on the scene including the Bolingbrook Fire Department. 

Crews also remained on the scene to check for an extension of the fire and assisted with ventilation. The cause of the fire was accidental due to discarded painted materials, according to officials.

After inspection, the home was determined habitable. Total damage is estimated at $45,000.
