Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Shortly before 4:30 p.m. Monday, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of fire at a residence in the 1N200 block of Darling Street in an unincorporated area of the county. Firefighters from Carol Stream, Wheaton, and Addison responded and extinguished the fire. One person was found dead in the home, and the DuPage County Fire Investigation Task Force is investigating the cause of the blaze.

On Tuesday, the DuPage County coroner’s office declined to provide the identity of the victim, saying that the case was still under police investigation.
