An extra-alarm blaze inside a vacant warehouse Monday afternoon on the Southwest Side has been extinguished.
The 2-11 alarm fire was reported in a vacant two-story warehouse at 3033 S. Damen Ave. just before 2 p.m., according to Fire Media Affairs Chief Kevin MacGregor.
The warehouse, described as a large complex, is partitioned by a firewall and a window. MacGregor said the fire was contained to one area of the warehouse and said the warehouse was surrounded by vacant properties.
There were no reports of injuries and the fire had not spread to any other buildings.
Crews extinguished the blaze at 2:50 p.m., MacGregor said.
A 2-11 alarm sends at least 8 engines, four trucks, two tower ladders, five battalion chiefs, a district chief, a deputy district chief, a squad company, an ambulance and the Command Van to the scene.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
