Nearly 100 Chicago firefighters responded to an out-of-control blaze on the 6000 block of South LaSalle Sunday night.
The fire at a vacant building started just after 11 p.m., said a Fire Media Affairs spokesperson, and quickly destroyed a building there. Flames were shooting up several feet above the roof while firefighters battled the inferno.
The fire burned through the first and second floors of the 2 1/2 story vacant residential building where it started. Then, it spread to another nearby vacant building, said authorities.
Firefighters extinguished the fire in about an hour and no injuries were reported.
