Last night just before 9 p.m., the New Lenox Fire Protection District received a call for a structure fire on LaJunta Court. While in route to the call, the firefighters received information that there were flames through the roof. Once the NLFPD arrived on scene, they were able to confirm the report and made sure everyone and the family dog were safely out of the home.
According to NLFPD Battalion Chief Chris Ward, “The fire was quickly extinguished, minimizing the damage to the garage, with no extension into the home.”
Assisting the NLFPD with the fire were Mokena, Frankfort, Manhattan and Orland Fire Protection Districts. Other area fire districts were brought in to cover any additional calls for service the NLFPD received during the fire.
No one was injured during the fire. The cause is currently under investigation.
