The first units on scene found the roof engulfed in flames, spreading aggressively on a two-story house, District 3 Public Information Officer Peter Loeb said in a news release. The blaze kept 29 firefighters busy for nearly two hours.
The owners of the home were treated for smoke inhalation by medics and received overnight accommodation arrangements through the Red Cross.
