Streamwood firefighters rescued a dog from a house fire on the 300 block of Huntington Drive Thursday morning, authorities said.
Investigators determined the blaze started on an exterior deck at the rear of the house before spreading to the attic. The fire caused an estimated $150,000 in damage
When firefighters responded to the 9:50 a.m. call, they saw heavy fire coming through the roof of the two-story single-family home. A resident had already safely evacuated but fire personnel found the dog in good health during their search of the house.
Fire companies brought the blaze under control using two hand lines and an aerial ladder.
