Townhouse Building Fire Displaces Naperville Families

Townhouse Building Fire Displaces Naperville Families

A blaze at a two-story, six-unit townhouse building at 2350 Oneida Street in Naperville Thursday evening left several Naperville residents without homes, according to a Naperville Fire Department press release. 

Fire officials responded to the townhouse complex at 5:10 Thursday after a resident called to report smoke, which had started to fill the building, according to the news release. 

When fire officials arrived on scene, they found the blaze in the building's laundry room, according to the news release. The fire was quickly extinguished. 

Crews remained on the scene for an additional hour clearing smoke from the building and checking for extension of the fire. The residents of the home were displaced and were seeking alternative shelter Thursday evening.  

The Naperville Fire Department was assisted by the Aurora and Bolingbrook Fire Departments who provided station coverage during the incident. 

A damage estimate is not yet available and the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
