KINGSTON – Six fire departments responded to a house fire Friday morning on the corner of Five Points and Aldrich roads.

DeKalb County Sheriff Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said a fire near the back porch of 28519 Five Points Road was reported about 8:50 a.m.

Genoa-Kingston, Sycamore, Kirkland, Maple Park, DeKalb and Hampshire fire departments responded to the fire.

The fire, which was called in by the family who lived there, took less than 30 minutes to extinguish, Dumdie said. No one was hurt.

Dumdie said the cause was still under investigation Friday morning, but the fire appeared to have started near the back wall.

Officials believed the house would still be inhabitable as there was only minor smoke damage.
