No injuries in Sugar Grove house fire

SUGAR GROVE – No one was injured in a small house fire in Sugar Grove Sunday, officials said.

Lt. Brendan Moran said an outside fire started an attic on fire at a one-story house at 224 Yolane St., at about 5:30 p.m. Homeowners called it in, he said.

Firefighters put the fire out in about 15 minutes, he said and there were no injuries to any homeowners or firemen.

Deputy Chief Bill Perkins sent an email Tuesday in which he explained that a charcoal "chimney" used to start charcoal for a grill ignited a plastic yard box on the rear patio.

"The flames ignited the soffit area and tranferred into the attic," he wrote.

The cause of the outside fire that led to the attic starting on fire is unknown and under investigation, Moran said. No estimate of damage was available.
