PEORIA — Peoria firefighters responded to a car and house fire in the 1100 block of West George Street around 4:45 a.m. Sunday.

About 25 responders put out a car fire, then extinguished a fire that had spread to the outside wall of the house at that same address.

Upon entering the structure, firefighters encountered heavy smoke in the attic and extinguished fire there while ventilating the roof.

There were no occupants in the house at the time, and no injuries were reported.

Damage estimates were placed at $20,000. Both fires are under investigation.
