Residents Displaced After Roseland Fire

CHICAGO (STMW) — Residents were displaced after a house fire early Wednesday in the Roseland neighborhood on the South Side.

The fire started in a 1-1/2-story frame house about 1 a.m. in the 200 block of West 113th Street, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

Flames could be seen coming through the roof of the home as firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze.

Residents were displaced as a result of the fire, although Knight could not provide an exact number. The Illinois Department of Human Services has been notified to assist them, Knight said.

No injuries were reported in the fire.
