Nobody was injured during a house fire that took place at 4:40 p.m. May 17 at 3152 Larrabee Drive in the Fisher Farms subdivision.
The Geneva Fire Department responded to the scene when the occupants called 911 after discovering a fire in the garage. A neighbor had noticed smoke coming from the garage of the home and alerted the occupants.
Upon arrival, firefighters found the garage fully involved in fire. The blaze was contained to the garage area and did not extend into the main portion of the residence. Two vehicles in the driveway, along with the vinyl siding of a neighboring house, did sustain damage due to radiant heat from the fire.
The fire is under investigation, but foul play is not suspected. Damage to the home and contents is estimated to be $150,000.
The Geneva Fire Department was assisted at the scene by mutual aid companies from the St. Charles, Batavia, Elburn, and the West Chicago fire departments. The Geneva Police Department also responded to the scene to provide traffic control.
