Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

A fire destroyed a vehicle in a one-car garage and damaged four townhouses in Batavia Friday night.

No one was injured in the fire that began at about 8:15 p.m. at a unit on the 400 block of Mill Street on the city’s west side, Batavia Deputy Fire Chief Craig Hanson said.

Crews from numerous fire departments were called in to assist with containing the fire, which was originally reported as vehicle on fire in a garage but was upgraded to a structure fire as the flames spread to a second-floor bedroom above the garage and then into three connected townhouse units.

Firefighters from Geneva, St. Charles, Cortland, South Elgin, Warrenville, and West Chicago assisted at the scene.
