Excerpts from Chicago.cbslocal.com:

Multiple fire departments responded to a massive house fire on Burning Tree Circle in McHenry that was fully engulfed by fire when crews arrived. High winds added to the power of the fire. An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.

The homeowner, who was home at the time, was not injured. The house is considered a total loss.
