Fire destroys vacant Maywood home

October 12, 2011 (MAYWOOD, Ill.)

Flames shooting out of the two-story home could be seen from the nearby Eisenhower Expressway.

Streets were closed near 1st Avenue and Congress as firefighters worked to control the fire in the frame building.

Firefighters feared that the blaze would spread, so they sprayed several neighboring homes.

No injuries were been reported. All streets have been reopened.
