A house was completely destroyed Monday morning in Cary in the northwest suburbs.

Crews were called to a fire about 6:40 a.m. in the 500 block of Holly Lynn Drive, and an off-duty firefighter who arrived on scene five minutes later saw the back of the two-story house was “well involved in fire,” according to Cary Fire Protection District spokesman Lt. Michael Douglass.

No one was home at the time of the fire, and it was declared under control by about 8:15 a.m., Douglass said.

One firefighter was taken in good condition to Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington after they said they weren’t feeling well, Douglass said.

No other injuries were reported, but the house was a “complete loss,” Douglass said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
