(CBS) — Two women and a dog were rescued from the rubble of a collapsed residential building Sunday night in the Washington Park neighborhood.
Firefighters swarmed the property at 58th Street and Calumet Avenue around 7 p.m. after reports of an explosion, and they pulled two women from the flattened property.
Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford said the women did not have any visible injuries when they were rescued.
A 78-year-old woman who lived on the second floor was listed in critical condition when she was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, because of the possibility of internal injuries. However, she was alert and talking when she was pulled out of the rubble.
A 51-year-old woman living on the third floor was in fair-to-serious condition when she was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Firefighters also rescued a dog named Tigger.
