Fire renders single-family home in Lemont uninhabitable
LEMONT — A fire severely damaged a residence in the Abbey Oaks subdivision of Lemont on Sunday morning.
The single-family home on the 1200 block of Brendans Court was left uninhabitable after a fire began in the basement, said Carl Churulo, chief of the Lemont Fire Protection District. The fire started in a void of the ceiling behind a television set in the basement, he said.
"The call came in at about 6:15 [a.m.] or so," Churulo said. "A teenage son was home at the time. He was the one who called us, and he got out safely."
