Oswego Fire Department responded after a house on 110 W. Bridge Street went up in flames.
Authorities say the fire had many layers, and because it was such a big home with several rooms, it was initially difficult for the firefighters. Despite this however, they were still able to prevent neighboring houses too much damage while ensuring the overall structure of the home stayed in tact.
Assistant Fire Chief Jon Chawgo applauded the efforts of the crew, saying “Our personnel did an excellent job knocking down the fire and protecting the neighboring structures. The house did sustain moderate damage, but is not considered a total loss and should be able to be repaired.”
The house is assumed to belong to college students, but nobody was home at the time of the incident.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
