ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A basement fire causes about $40,000 in damage to a Rockford home.
The Rockford Fire Department says it started just after midnight at a home in the 2800 block of Hanson Street.
Crews were able to keep the fire from spreading through the entire house, but the basement and laundry area have quite a bit of damage. Luckily no one was home at the time.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
