SHARE Fire causes $100K in damage to Streamwood home

A fire caused more than $100,000 in damage Monday to a home in northwest suburban Streamwood.

Firefighters found flames coming from an attached garage when they responded at 12:19 p.m. to the single-family home in the 100 block of Hastings Mill Road, according to the Streamwood Fire Department.

The flames spread to the second floor, damaging some floor supports, fire officials said.

One person was at home at the time, but made it out safely before emergency crews arrived, officials said. No one was hurt, and crews were able to quickly extinguish the flames.

The home sustained about $100,000 in damage, officials said. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

Crews from Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, Hanover Park and Bartlett assisted in the response.
