No injuries were reported to civilians or firefighters in a structure fire that caused an estimated $100,000 in damage to a two-story duplex in Aurora on Saturday.

According to the Aurora Fire Department, fire crews responded to a structure fire in the 900 blk. of Bishop Ave. at around 11:52 a.m.

At the time of the fire there were three adults, two children below the age of five and one 11-month-old infant in the first-floor unit when the smoke detector activated.

Upon investigation, one of the adult occupants found a small fire in the rear of the home and tried to extinguish it; however, it was unsuccessful.

All occupants, including an adult who lived in the second-floor unit, were able to exit safely and call 911.

Fire crews were able to bring the fire under control in about 15 minutes.

Victims Services were called to assist the occupants as both units were deemed uninhabitable.

The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
