CHICAGO (STMW) — One adult and one child were treated for smoke inhalation after a small fire broke out in a residence in the West Englewood neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

The fire broke out in a home in the 1700 block of West 71st Street sometime before 4:15 p.m., according Fire Media Affairs.

The child and adult – whose ages and genders were not released – were transported to Holy Cross Hospital where they are in good condition, fire officials said.

The fire quickly was extinguished, officials said, though a spokesman for the fire department could not say precisely what time that was at.
