Fire damages Mundelein home

A Mundelein resident is displaced after a fire early Monday at a northwest suburban home.

Firefighters responded about 3:40 a.m. to the fire in the 900 block of Northwest Holcomb and found heavy fire, the Mundelein Fire Department said.

The one person who lives there heard a smoke detector and made it out of the home safely with assistance from police, the department said.

The fire started at the rear of the home, and did moderate damage to the roof, attic and bedrooms, fire officials said.

The home is uninhabitable, and the resident is staying at a hotel. Fire officials continue to investigate the cause of the blaze.
