One person was seriously injured after an extra-alarm house fire in the Logan Square neighborhood Tuesday morning, the Chicago Fire Department said.
The fire broke out in a three-story, single-family home in the 2400-block of North Washtenaw Avenue at about 6 a.m. and spread to several neighboring homes.
Chopper 7HD flew above the scene with flames 40 to 50 feet high. At one point, flames and smoke intensified, forcing firefighters off of one of the rooftops. By 7:30 a.m., CFD officials said the main fire had been struck.
An elderly person was transported in serious but stable condition, CFD said. Multiple people have been displaced by the fire.
CFD said one home is a total loss, with three others being severely damaged.
The CTA has detoured the #74 Fullerton bus around the area.
