15 Displaced By Extra-Alarm Fire In Chicago Ridge

Crews responded about 10:30 p.m. to the blaze at the 18-unit building in the 9800 block of Sayre Avenue. Firefighters were met by heavy flames showing from the back of the second story and spreading to the roof. A second alarm was called for the fire due to the sloppy winter weather and a frozen fire hydrant.
