The cause of the fire is under investigation

CRYSTAL LAKE – A house fire caused $15,000 in damage to a Crystal Lake home Friday evening, fire officials said.

Crystal Lake Fire Rescue Department responded to a report of smoke coming from the roof of a building on the 1390 block of North Avenue about 5:40 p.m. Friday. When crews arrived at the scene, light smoke was visible coming from the roof near the chimney, according to the department.

Fire crews deployed a hose into the residence to battle the fire and search for residents. Responders extinguished the fire before damage could spread beyond the roof area. No one was injured during the incident, according to the department.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
