Naperville house fire causes $800K in damages

A house caught fire in Naperville early Tuesday morning, causing an estimated $800,000 in damages. 

The Naperville Fire Department was called to a report of a structure fire in the 2700 block of Willow Ridge Drive at 3:50 a.m. 

Crews arrived on the scene within seven minutes of the call and were met with heavy fire coming from the back of the home.
