The Westmont Fire Department responded to a house fire this afternoon along the 300 block of W. Naperville Road that caused extensive damage to the home, and left residents who live there displaced.
No one was injured, officials said.
The department received the call of a fire at about 3:15 p.m. Monday at 336 W. Naperville Road. Westmont Fire Chief Dave Weiss said the call was made by the only resident inside the home at the time, and when units arrived, they saw a fire on the second floor and attic area of the house, which was subdivided into three apartments, Weiss said.
No one was injured, but damage was extensive, and Weiss said several people who live in the apartment units are working with the Red Cross in finding a place to stay, a the home is not inhabitable. No damage estimate was available at this time.
He said the department is investigating the cause of the blaze, and crews do not know where, or how it started, at this time.
Several other fire departments were on hand to help bring the fire under control, including units from Downers Grove, Oak Brook, and the Tri State Fire Protection District.
