A townhouse in northwest suburban Wheeling caught fire early Friday morning.

A firefighter was injured while trying to put out the flames in the 500-block of Custer Court.

The owners and their cat were not hurt. It is not yet clear what sparked the flames.

The fire chief suspects the blaze actually started outside the home, but they are still investigating.
