Harlem Roscoe Firefighters were called at 1:40am this morning for a report of a house fire on Nesting Eagles St. in MACHESNEY PARK. Upon arrival of first units, there was fire through the roof of a single family residence. It took firefighters approximately 60 minutes to bring the fire under control, battling a brisk NW wind, which fueled the fire as well. The occupants in the home were alerted by smoke detectors and exited the home safely. Firefighters remained on the scene until 4:30am extinguishing hot spots. The home is uninhabitable. There were no injuries to firefighters.
