Flames were shooting out the roof of a single-story commercial building at 3330 N. Clark Street, south of Wrigley Field and near CTA railroad tracks, prompting the massive response around 5 p.m. The fire was later upgraded to a three-alarm fire following an explosion that rattled firefighters.
Fire officials say the fire started at a closed hookah lounge, Samah, and was reported by Roadhouse 66, a business within the row. A third business, Thai Classic, also occupied the building.
