Excerpts from nbcchicago.com:

A fire broke out at around 2 a.m. at the apartment complex located on Coniston Court near Windermere Road in Winfield. Firefighters worked quickly as flames burst through the roof, some shooting 30 feet into the air. Multiple fire companies responded as the townhomes are very close to one another and there was concern that it could spread quickly.

No injuries were reported to firefighters or residents, eight of which were displaced. The cause of the fire remained under investigation, though officials said it did not appear to be suspicious.
