Fire caused by water heater displaces two families

Posted: Updated:

Two families were displaced after a fire broke out Saturday night in west suburban Aurora.

Firefighters responded to a blaze about 7:30 p.m. in the basement of a two-unit apartment building, located in the 600 block of High Street, a statement from Aurora Fire Department said.

Four fire companies helped extinguish the flames, caused by items placed too close to a water heater, the statement said. The fire was contained to the basement.

No one was injured, but two families were displaced and are staying with relatives, the fire department said.

Damages to the building are estimated at $5,000.
