A house in Sugar Grove has been completely destroyed after a fire broke out early Wednesday morning.
Firefighters were called to the scene on Peoria Road at 5:00 am, where they found the flames had already taken a large part of the property. Two people were inside the house at the time, but they were able to evacuate without any injury thanks to their son, who woke them up after the smoke alarms failed to go off. Authorities say the cause of the fire is still under investigation. The Fire Marshal's Office has reminded the public of the importance of having working smoke detectors in their homes and has also highlighted the NCBAM's free smoke detector installation and inspection program, which is available for those aged 65 and above until April 28th.
