Morning Fire Damages Algonquin Home
Crewmen put out the smoky fire and remained on the scene until after 11 investigating it afterward but Battalion Chief John Knebl said no cause had been found yet. There were no injuries in the fire and family members said Wednesday afternoon they planned to stay with neighbors.
Knebl said the smoke alarm at the residence was working and reminded residents that there is a greater than 50 percent chance of surviving a home fire when there is a working smoke alarm.
