Naperville firefighters and police rescued one resident and several pets after fire broke out in a home’s basement Sunday morning.

One pet remained unaccounted for after firefighters extinguished the blaze in the 800 block of North Main Street, authorities said.

Firefighters called to the home at 9:43 a.m. arrived about three minutes later to find smoke throughout the split-level residence, according to the Naperville Fire Department. Two people had escaped on their own by the time first responders arrived, but one person who remained inside was rescued from the first floor and taken to a hospital for treatment of undisclosed injuries.
