A firefighter was injured battling a blaze that caused $200,000 in damage to a house Thursday afternoon in north suburban Lake Forest.
Firefighters were called at 12:04 p.m. to a house in the 700 block of Greenbriar Lane and arrived to find fire showing through the roof, according to a statement from the Lake Forest Fire Department.
All residents had gotten out of the home by the time firefighters arrived, the fire department said. Crews attacked the fire from inside the home, but encountered several “hidden fires” because of the house’s vaulted ceilings and varied roof lines.
The blaze was under control by 2:06 p.m., according to the department. One firefighter suffered a minor injury, and no residents were hurt.
Damage to the house was estimated at $200,000.
