Fire rips through suburban home

February 29, 2008 5:42:57 AM PST
Weather and live ammunition hampered firefighters battling a huge house fire in the southwest suburbs. Crews could do little to save the house along Cokes Road in Unincorporated Will County. The fire began in the garage and quickly spread.

Ice and the lack of working fire hydrants made it a challenge for emergency crews. And, because ammunition began going off inside the burning building, crews had to keep their distance.

No one was hurt.

There has been no word on what started this fire.
