A late July 5 fire heavily damaged the attic of a home in Masury.
Brookfield Fire Chief David Masirovits said a cause could not be determined, and firefighters have closed their investigation. The cause is not suspicious, he said.
The fire was called in at 10:24 p.m. at 7911 First St., a home owned by Gowharah Alhadi.
There were three people in the house, including Aziz Alhadi, and one of them is believed to have been among the 911 callers, Masirovits said. The occupants got out safely.
promoA man who was in the home the following morning declined to comment.
“We had heavy smoke and fire showing from the attic,” Masirovits said of when firefighters arrived.
The attic of the two-and-a-half story home is a confined space with blown-in insulation, which made it difficult for firefighters to get to the flames, he said.
The occupants were in touch with the American Red Cross, said the chief, who estimated the damage at $25,000 to $30,000, which included contents and water damage.
“I want to say thank you to the surrounding companies that helped us,” Masirovits said, naming Vienna, Hubbard and Sharon.
