Fire on the 1400 Block of English Court Extinguished

Naperville’s Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) received a call at 9:57 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 14 for a structure fire at a 2-story single-family residence located in the 1400 block English Ct. A general alarm assignment was dispatched by Naperville 911 PSAP. The assignment consisted of 10 pieces of fire apparatus and 24 personnel including an Incident Commander and Incident Safety Officer to the reported address.

At the time of the fire, four occupants were home. PSAP advised them to evacuate the building. Engine 5 arrived on the scene at 10:02 p.m. They established command and identified smoke and a small fire in the attached garage of the home. A coordinated attack was initiated by Engine 5, Squad 8, and supporting suppression units.

Within five minutes of arrival, the crew had extinguished the fire and the fire was contained to the area of origin. The fire had not communicated to the exterior of the home as it was limited to the garage. Minor overhaul and ventilation were conducted to expose any areas of high heat and remove smoke from the home.

Naperville Police Department and the Naperville Transportation, Engineering, and Development Team (TED) assisted the Naperville Fire Department on the scene. Plainfield Fire Protection District, the Bolingbrook Fire Department, and the Lockport Fire Protection District provided station coverage. Lawnmower stored in the garage was the cause of the fire.

Fire department personnel evaluated one of the occupants of the home. They treated and released the occupant. No firefighter sustained any injuries while operating on the scene. The building was deemed to be habitable and no occupants were displaced.
