SANDWICH – A Sandwich home sustained about $150,000 worth of damage from a fire over the weekend.
Sandwich Deputy Fire Chief Nathan King said firefighters were called at 6:45 p.m. Sunday to the 1100 block of Daniel Lane after an initial report of a vehicle on fire inside the garage.
“When I arrived, there was heavy fire showing from the garage extending up into the attic,” King said.
King said fire officials were able to bring the fire under control in about 45 minutes and were on scene for about three hours. All occupants and pets of the house were able escape without injuries, he said.
King said fire officials believe there is $150,000 in damage resulting from the fire.
The official cause of the fire is unclear. King said the fire was still under investigation Monday afternoon, but officials don’t believe the fire is suspicious in nature.
King said the Red Cross was on the scene to help the occupants of the house.
King said Bristol-Kendall, Little Rock-Fox, Somonauk, Newark, Big Rock, Oswego, Hinckley and Leland fire services assisted in the call.
