A large fire gutted a suburban home on Thursday afternoon, with authorities saying that a pet dog was killed in the inferno.
According to authorities, firefighters from Fox River Grove were called to the home, located in Barrington Hills, at approximately 2:01 p.m. for a structure fire.
Units arrived just five minutes later, and found that an attached garage was already fully engulfed with flames. The fire was quickly elevated to a three-alarm blaze, bringing additional departments to the scene.
Firefighters were ultimately able to extinguish the blaze, but not before it devastated the home, which was termed a total loss.
While members of the family were able to escape unharmed, a pet dog was killed in the fire, according to officials.
No cause of the fire has yet been determined, and an investigation remains underway.
