BARTLETT – A fire in Bartlett caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to a single-family home Monday, according to a news release from the Bartlett Fire Protection District.

Firefighters were dispatched at 11:40 a.m. to the house at 700 Holly Drive, and the fire was brought under control about a half hour after their arrival, the release stated. The scene was cleared at 1:50 p.m.

Upon arrival, crews found an exterior wall of the home engulfed in flames from a natural gas-fed fire. They were able to contain the fire to the living room and attic and had to wait for NICOR to turn off the gas before the fire could be extinguished completely, according to the release.

A family dog was rescued from the home by Bartlett police before firefighters arrived, and no one else was home at the time of fire, which caused no injuries, the release stated.

The living and dining rooms and exterior wall sustained fire and water damage, while the remainder of the house suffered smoke damage, according to the release.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, the release stated.

Bartlett fire personnel were assisted by the Bartlett Police Department and the Hanover Park, Schaumburg and Streamwood fire departments.
