A house on the block of 1900 W. Cuyler Ave. was gutted and neighboring homes were damaged early this morning by a fire resulting from floor varnish fumes, say the victims. Nobody was hurt in the fire.Neighbors noticed the fire at about 6:30 a.m. and called in fire crews. The homeowners, a family of four, were staying in a downtown hotel as the floors dried. Fire crews had blocked off Damen Ave. between Irving Park Rd. and Belle Plaine Ave., temporarily disrupting traffic. The streets were clear by 8:00 a.m. this morning.

    I just talked to the neighbor, who also had a lot of fire damage to their vinyl siding, and both houses had insurance, and claims have been filed. SO that is good news! Make sure to check your own homeowners insurance policies, and be ready.
