CARY – Firefighters responded to a Cary house fire early Monday afternoon.

Six people, including a 4-year-old girl, safely evacuated the home at 6401 Shannon Drive. No one was injured, and the cause of the fire is unclear.

Homeowner John Schumacher said the fire started in the second-story master bedroom.

Smoke was billowing out of the second-story window, but the fire appeared to be contained to the left side of the home, Cary Fire Lt. Michael Douglass said.

Cary, Fox River Grove, and Algonquin-Lake in the Hills fire departments responded to the fire. Cary Fire Department was dispatched at 11:53 a.m. and arrived shortly after noon.
