A structure fire left a business in a Naperville strip mall uninhabitable on Wednesday.

According to the Naperville Fire Department, fire crews responded to the 1100 blk. of E. Ogden Ave. at around 10:24 p.m. following a 911 call from a citizen reporting smoke.

First responders identified a commercial strip mall with smoke showing from the roof.

The fire was deemed under control within 10 minutes with additional time to clear smoke from the business.

Salvage and overhaul operations were also performed to limit further damage to property and contents of the businesses in the strip mall.

It was determined upon initial investigation that the kitchen hood suppression system kept the fire in check until crews could extinguish the fire, limiting the spread of fire and minimizing damage.

The involved business was declared uninhabitable and the County Health Department was notified for appropriate inspections. No injuries were reported to citizens or fire fighters.

Additional assistance was provided by the Naperville Police Department, the Lisle-Woodridge Fire Protection District and the Transportation and Engineering Department.

The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time by the Naperville Fire Investigation Team.
