~ On Monday, Sept. 25, at 8:57 p.m., Naperville's Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) received a call for a structure fire at a 2-story, wood-framed, single-family residential structure on the 4100 Block of Emporia Ct. In response to the call, Naperville 911 (PSAP) dispatched a general alarm assignment consisting of ten pieces of fire apparatus and twenty-four personnel including an Incident Commander and an Incident Safety Officer to the reported address. PSAP also advised the occupants to evacuate the building.

At 9:01 p.m., Engine 6 arrived on scene and identified fire showing on the exterior of the home in the rear. Incident command was established and crews conducted a 360-degree survey of the home to confirm all occupants were out of the building at the time of NFD arrival. Fire companies quickly worked to extinguish the fire on the exterior of the home with a single hose line and conducted primary and secondary searches with no additional occupants found. Companies on scene then conducted overhaul and ventilation to expose any areas of hidden fire or high heat and remove smoke. The fire was contained to the exterior of the home and crews were able to fully extinguish it within six minutes of NFD arrival with no extension into the home or damage to its interior occurring.
