An early morning fire caused damage to a Johnsburg house Tuesday, McHenry Township Fire Protection District said in a news release.
Officials suspect discarded cigarettes sparked the fire, according to the release.
The district responded about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday to the 2200 block of Coolidge Avenue in Johnsburg for a reported structure fire. When the crew arrived, there was light smoke coming through the eaves near the front door of the ranch home, according to the district.
Fire fighters overhauled the eaves and determined the fire was out. No fire or smoke entered the home, according to the district.
Five McHenry Township Fire District vehicles and 19 firefighters responded to the scene. Fox Lake and Spring Grove fire departments were initially called but returned once crews realized there wasn't an active fire, according to the district.
McHenry County Sheriff's Office also responded.
Residents were home at the time but no one was injured during the incident.
The damage is estimated at $5,000 and is limited the outside wall of the porch and deck, according to the district.
