Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

There were no injuries in an early Tuesday morning fire in Lake Villa that destroyed a single-family home whose owner is out of town, according to Lake Villa Fire Department Chief Frank Slazes.

Investigators with the Lake Villa Fire Department and Lake County Sheriff’s Office are looking to determine the cause and origin of the fire that was called in by neighbors at 12:47 a.m. in the 20600 block of Lakeview Avenue.

“At first, we couldn’t see much because of the fog, but when we rounded the corner, we could see the house was fully involved with fire,” said Slazes.
