A Chicago firefighter is recovering from injuries from an early morning fire on the North Side.
 
The fire started around 4 a.m. in a three-story apartment building in the 2700 block of West Francis Place in the Logan Square neighborhood.

 
It was contained to the first floor, a fire department official said. Ten residents from all three floors were displaced.
 
The firefighter was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in serious condition after falling down a flight of stairs, said Chicago Fire Department Spokesman Larry Langford.
 
"It looked more exciting than it was. He took a minor fall and hit his shoulder, but he's fine. He'll be released," said Langford.
 
No other injuries were reported.
