Several people were injured and at least 20 people were displaced Saturday morning in an extra-alarm fire in the West Side’s Little Village neighborhood, officials said.

The fire was sparked just before 4:30 a.m. in the 2300 block of South Kedzie Avenue. Flames spread to surrounding buildings, which prompted a 2-11 alarm.

Ten people, including four children, were taken to area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries, according to multiple reports.

Firefighters said the blaze was under control just before 6 a.m. and is believed to have been started on the rear porches of one building, officials said.

About 20 people were being housed at a firehouse across the street from the buildings and several people were being evaluated with “minor issues” following the fire, according to Chicago Fire Media Affairs.

The Chicago Police Department’s Bomb and Arson Unit is investigating the blaze, officials said.
