CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A garage caught fire after someone disposed of fireworks in a recycling bin Saturday in west suburban Naperville, officials said.

Firefighters responded at about 10:40 p.m. to reports of a blaze in the garage of a home in the 300 block of Leeds Court, Naperville fire officials said.
