One person was killed in a fire that destroyed a two-story home in the northern suburbs. Firefighters arrived at a brick home in the 400-block of Julian in Waukegan at about 6:15 a.m. Monday and spent two hours to bring the fire under control.

A portion of the roof caved in while they were battling smoke and flames. Ammunition inside the home exploded, keeping firefighters back.

The Lake County coroner says a man in his 50s was killed. The victim's name has not been released.
