    A fire broke out across the street from the Cook County Jail Friday morning, causing smoke inhalation injuries for an adult and two children.

    At about 6 a.m. the fire started in a three-story wood frame house on the 2500 block of South California Avenue, Fire Department Commander Sean Flynn told the Chicago Tribune.

    California Avenue between 25th and 26th streets was blocked off as fire crews put out the fire, which was extinguished at 7 a.m., Flynn said.

    The three people were transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in good condition.
