Excerpts from the Kanecountychronicle.com:

No one was injured during a fire at a St. Charles apartment complex Feb. 7. The call came at about 1 p.m. at the Surrey Hill Apartments, 201 N. Tyler Road, resulting in an evacuation of the building to the lobby while firefighters worked to extinguish the fire which apparently started on a fourth floor balcony.

The apartments have balconies located next to each other and the fire extended to both of the sides. Investigators were trying to determine the balcony where the fire started – as well as how it started. Both apartments had some smoke damage, but the bulk of the fire and damage was to the balconies and the roof overhang. Damages were estimated at $10,000.

The St. Charles Fire Department was assisted by the Geneva, Batavia, Elburn, and West Chicago fire departments.
