Tuesday afternoon, at approximately 2:15 p.m., the New Lenox Fire Protection District was dispatched to the 2900 block of Doxbury Court for a structure fire. Upon arrival, crews determined that a fire had occurred and the exterior rear of the structure had been on fire. Prior to our arrival, an off-duty firefighter had spotted the smoke and extinguished the fire with the residents’ garden hose.
The NLFPD checked the home for any remaining fire and cleared smoke from the residence.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the NLFPD and the New Lenox Police Department.
