Fire damages abandoned Joliet home

JOLIET – Fire damaged an abandoned house Friday night in Joliet.

Battalion Chief Mike Stromberg said firefighters were called at 10:25 p.m. to the 900 block of East Cass Street where a one-story house had "heavy fire in half the structure."

"Crews were able to control it in 15 minutes and were on scene for two hours. Com Ed responded to control an arcing power line in the front yard," Stromberg said.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
