One firefighter was injured Tuesday night in a fire in northwest suburban Streamwood, according to the Streamwood Fire Department.

Firefighters responded at 11:51 p.m. to a fire in the 200 block of Teak Lane and found flames pouring from the roof of a two-story townhouse with four units, the department said.

Residents, woken up by smoke detectors, safely evacuated the home before firefighters arrived.

Firefighters battled fierce winds as they searched the residence and put out the fire. One firefighter sustained injuries that were not life threatening, the department said.

The department estimated the fire caused about $150,000 in damage to the home. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
