No injuries were reported in an early morning house fire in Carpentersville Thursday.

Carpentersville Fire Department Chief John-Paul Schilling said firefighters were dispatched at 12:43 a.m. to a house on the 1700 block of Papoose Road. Upon arrival, they found heavy fire and smoke coming from the one-story, single-family home.

Firefighters were on the scene for about three hours, but Schilling said the blaze was “under control” within the 30 minutes.
