CHICAGO (CBS) – An extra-alarm fire broke out Tuesday morning on the city’s West Side.
Fire crews responded to the industrial building at 1108 S. Kilbourn Ave. just after 8 a.m. for a report of smoke, according to Fire Media Affairs Chief Kevin MacGregor.
The response was raised to a 2-11 alarm.
The building on fire is a one-story, truss roof structure and the roof had reportedly collapsed as of 8:25 a.m., according to fire reports.
A 2-11 alarm sends at least eight engines, four trucks, two tower ladders, five battalion chiefs, a district chief, a deputy district chief, a squad company, an ambulance and the command van to the scene.
The fire was out by about 9:10 a.m., MacGregor said. Firefighters remained on the scene as of about 9:20 a.m., and no injuries had been reported from the blaze.
