One person was injured after a house was damaged by a fire Aug. 30 at 220 Kansas St. on Geneva’s east side.
The Geneva Fire Department was dispatched to the incident at about 8:03 p.m. after a neighbor spotted the fire and called 911. As engines arrived on the scene, smoke was coming from the east side of the single-family home, and flames were visible from the front window. Firefighters found the homeowner outside the front door with burn injuries.
Firefighters initiated an interior attack and brought the fire under control in about 20 minutes. The homeowner was transported by ambulance to Delnor Hospital in Geneva.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. The home sustained fire and heat damage in the kitchen and smoke damage throughout the structure. Damage estimates still are being compiled, but the house has been deemed uninhabitable at this time.
Firefighters from Batavia, St. Charles, Elburn and the West Chicago fire departments assisted Geneva at the scene. The Fermilab and North Aurora fire departments provided backup at the Geneva fire stations during the call.
Additional support was given by the Geneva Emergency Management Agency, Geneva Police Department and the Geneva Public Works Department.
