A house fire that occurred on Monday night in Plano is being investigated as a suspicious circumstances fire.

Little Rock-Fox Fire and several other fire departments were called to the scene, in addition to Plano Police, who responded around 6:41 p.m. to the 3900 block of Legner St.

Little Rock-Fox Fire Chief Greg Witek says when crews arrived on scene, flames were found through the center of the roof and the fire moved its way to the ends of the building. He says the residence was unoccupied.

Authorities say the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Plano Police are asking anyone with information to contact them about the fire.

Chief Witek says one firefighter with his department required transport to an area hospital for treatment. No other injuries were reported.

Two nearby homes in the subdivision also sustained some exterior damage.

Witek says both nearby homes were evacuated during the response and residents were later able to return to their homes. In regard to the home where the main fire occurred, Witek estimates the residence is a total loss. He says crews had the fire knocked down around 10:00 p.m. but crews were on scene well past midnight for investigation.

Little Rock-Fox Fire was assisted by Sandwich, Bristol-Kendall, Somonauk, Sugar Grove and Big Rock Fire in response or change of quarters. The Kendall County Sheriff's Office and Illinois State Fire Marshall also assisted at the scene.
