(NAPERVILLE) Firefighters had to battle extreme weather conditions and a house fire Wednesday afternoon in west suburban Naperville.

About 2:44 p.m., a 911 caller reported smoke and fire on the first floor of their home in the 1400 block of Duquesne, a statement from the Naperville Fire Department said. A second 911 call minutes later reported smoke showing outside the home.

Firefighters arrived within five minutes and saw fire and smoke on the first floor of the home, from which all of the residents had safely escaped, the statement said.

Firefighters battled extreme weather  but were able to bring the blaze under control in about 20 minutes, the statement said.

The home sustained “extensive fire damage,” but two residents were treated at the scene and did not require hospitalization, the statement said. No firefighters were injured.

A city Transportation, Engineering and Development Department inspector “deemed the building not habitable,” the statement said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
