A firefighter returning from a call spotted smoke and discovered another fire in Godley about 20 miles south west of Joliet.

Two homes were damaged, but no one was hurt.

One woman described what happened.

"We were sitting in our bedroom and there was a brush fire in the back and it within a minute the house was burning," said Virginia Noonan.

A firefighter from nearby Braidwood says the cause of the fire is under investigation but says it does appear the fire was burning outside, then spread to the homes.
