Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

Two residences in Fox Lake were damaged by separate fires on Sunday.

Firefighters responded at about 4:55 p.m. to a fire on the 0-100 block of East Grand Avenue and had to cut open a section of wall about four feet high and eight feet long. The area has commercial units in front and residential units in the back. The fire started in a storage/utility room in the residential area; one dwelling suffered fire damage and another smoke damage.

A residence on the 7300 block of Dunwood Court in the Leisure Village retirement community was rendered uninhabitable after a fire in the attic, Connelly. Firefighters responded to the call at about 6:47 p.m. after residents saw smoke coming through a bathroom ceiling vent. Crews entered the attic to fight the fire and also had to break through the ceiling of two bedrooms and a hallway.

No one was injured and the cause of both fires remains under investigation.
