According to Lisle-Woodridge Fire District, a general alarm structure fire assignment was dispatched, which consist of four engines, two ladder trucks, two ambulances, and command staff.

The first fire unit arrived on the scene and reported heavy smoke and fire coming from the first floor window of a detached single-family home. A neighbor at the scene advised firefighters that there may be an occupant in the residence. Firefighters initiated an aggressive interior fire attack, and searched the home. Firefighters determined the home was not occupied during the time they were working at the fire scene.

Companies remained on the scene until approximately 12:30 p.m., performing salvage and overhaul duties. The structure was deemed uninhabitable by the Village of Woodridge Building Department representative.

Firefighters, paramedics and/or command officers from Lombard Fire Department, Darien-Woodridge Fire District, and Downers Grove Fire Department were assigned mutual aid.

An investigation is being completed by the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District Investigation Team. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
