UPDATE: House fire on DuPont Road

MORRIS — At about 2 p.m. Friday, fire crews were called to the scene of a fire in the 1300 block of DuPont Road south of Morris, where a two-storey single-family home was ablaze.

Tony Nehnelman of Morris said he had passed by the house on DuPont Road south of Morris not 15 minutes before and it was fine, but when he passed by again he saw that there was a fire on the porch. Nehnelman said it was fully-involved when he arrived, and he got a woman and her children, who were upstairs and unaware of the fire, out of the building.

The homeowner said her kids and grandkids all got out safely.
