No injuries in Woodstock fire

WOODSTOCK – No one was injured as a result of a house fire in Woodstock on Friday.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded around 4 p.m. to a fire at 1067 Greenwood Circle, Captain Scott Nieman said.

It appeared the fire started in the garage and spread to the first floor of the house, causing about $80,000 in damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

One of the residents – Nieman said he believed a couple lived there – was home and saw smoke coming through the vents. He evacuated the house and called 911, Nieman said. The resident was not injured, and the couple has a place to stay.

The Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department assisted, and the Marengo Fire Protection District came to respond to any other calls that came in while Woodstock firefighters were on the scene.
