A fire damaged a home in Evanston late Tuesday night.
It happened just before 10 p.m. in the 1800 block of Clarion Avenue.
Upon arrival, fire companies reported smoke showing from the front porch of a 2.5 story occupied brick two family home. A small fire was found in the joist spaces of the porch roof.
The fire was contained to the port area and quickly extinguished.
The fire was caused by hot coals in a thin aluminum pan sitting on top of the roof.
No one was hurt. Damage is estimated at $5,000.
