Firefighters and fire department crews are working on a house fire in O’Fallon IL in Southern Illinois near St. Louis MO.

Firefighters have extinguished a house fire at 209 Bethal Road and are now working the remaining hot spots as of 11:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Lebanon and Troy crews are assisting O’Fallon crews on scene.

According to O’Fallon fire captain Frank Shewmaker, the fire started in a laundry room fuse box. The first floor of the two-story home was fully involved, and flames also got into the attic ceiling, Shewmaker said.

The occupants of the house got out safely about 8:30 p.m., he said.

Shewmaker said the fire caused “pretty significant damage to the house,” but there were no injuries.
